Baylor Baseball’s Daniel Castano Named Big 12 Pitcher of the Week

IRVING, Texas – Baylor baseball junior left-hander Daniel Castano was named Big 12 Pitcher of the Week, the league office announced Monday.

The Austin native earned the series-clinching win over No. 10 TCU on May 14 at Baylor Ballpark, allowing two runs on seven hits and two walks with two strikeouts in seven-plus innings.  Castano’s effort helped BU win its first series over a Baseball America ranked opponent since sweeping No. 13 Cal Poly on Feb. 13-15, 2015, in Waco and first series win over a top 10 ranked Baseball America opponent since taking two of three from No. 4 Cal State Fullerton on March 7-9, 2014, in Waco.

The honor marks the second for Castano this season as he was named Big 12 Co-Pitcher of the Week on March 7 for the first time in his career after he tossed a gem at No. 21 Houston on March 4 to earn the win, allowing five hits and two walks with a then-career-high-tying six strikeouts in a then-season-high seven scoreless innings.  The accolade is Castano’s third of his career from the league as he was named Big 12 Newcomer of the Week on April 21, 2014.

Castano’s recognition from the league gives BU three this season as Josh Bissonette was named Big 12 Newcomer of the Week on March 28.  Castano gave the Bears their 35th all-time Big 12 Pitcher of the Week selection.
