Arguello named Pitcher of the Year

And while we're dishing out congratulatory remarks, we owe a big one to Corpus' Douglas Arguello, who was named the team Pitcher of the Year yesterday.

Arguello, 25, tied Astros top prospect Jordan Lyles for the team lead in victories with seven. His 2.55 ERA led the Texas League. Arguello's two complete games topped the Hooks staff. He struck out 100 over 127 innings (22 starts) and issued 47 walks. Only four hitters popped home runs with Arguello on the mound, an average of one round-tripper every 32 innings.

Also receiving awards were Corpus' Omni Marina Hotel for Best Visiting Team Hotel, and clubhouse manager Brad Starr, voted by umpires as the Best Officials' Dressing Room.
