Atlantic League Names Daryl Thompson as Pitcher of the Year

(October 5, 2022, New York) – The Atlantic League of Professional Baseball on Tuesday named the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs’ Daryl Thompson as the league’s Pitcher of the Year in voting conducted by the league’s managers, coaches and front office staffs.

For Thompson, it marks his third consecutive Pitcher of the Year award and the most Pitcher of the Year awards garnered by an ALPB pitcher.

In 2022, Thompson led the Atlantic League with 15 wins and a 3.43 earned run average. He tied for the league lead, and tied the league record, with three shutouts while finishing second with four complete games.

Dwayne Pollok of Lancaster is the only other player in league history to earn consecutive Pitcher of the Year awards, taking the title in 2012 and 2013.

Thompson is the first Atlantic League pitcher with three 15-win seasons as he went 15-8 in 2019, 16-3 in 2021 and 15-4 this past season. He is the league’s all-time leader with 91 career wins, 1,340.2 innings pitched, and 968 strikeouts. His five career shutouts are tied with John Brownell (2012-19) for the most in league history.

The Atlantic League will announce its Player of the Year on Thursday.
