Holdgrafer named Frontier League Pitcher of the Week
EVANSVILLE, Ind. – The Frontier League has named Evansville Otters pitcher Tim Holdgrafer the Pitcher of the Week.
In earning the award, Holdgrafer pitched a stellar outing last Thursday against the Empire State Greys at Bosse Field.
Holdgrafer earned a win after throwing seven shutout innings, but he also set a career-high with 13 strikeouts.
The 13 strikeouts were only three away from the Otters’ individual single-game record.
The Greys could muster only three hits off the Otters’ right-hander.
In his second season with Evansville, Holdgrafer is off to a solid start in 2022 after leading the Frontier League with 121 strikeouts in 2021.
Overall, Holdgrafer has thrown 12 innings with 15 strikeouts and a 0.75 ERA, while allowing a single earned run.
Holdgrafer’s honor is the first Frontier League individual honor of the 2022 season for the Otters.
Evansville returns to the field starting Tuesday as part of a six-game road swing against Ottawa and Trois-Rivieres in Canada. Holdgrafer is slated to start during the Ottawa series.
The Otters’ series opener at Ottawa is at 5:30 p.m. CT Tuesday.
