Chris Ellis is one of two pitchers named to the Pitcher of the Year watch list.
April 28, 2014
OXFORD, Miss. – A pair of Ole Miss pitchers found themselves on the watch list for Pitcher of the Year when right-hander Chris Ellis and left-hander Christian Trent were tabbed by the College Baseball Foundation for consideration recently.
The duo are a group of nine players from the Southeastern Conference to be named to the list and Ole Miss is one of only two schools in the league to have more than one pitcher on the initial 47 man watch list.
The Pitcher of the Year Award, sponsored by Diamond, will be presented during the National College Baseball Hall of Fame's annual Night of Champions on June 28 in Lubbock, Texas.
Ellis anchors the Friday night spot in the weekend rotation for the Rebels and holds a 6-0 record on the year with a 1.81 ERA through 11 starts. In five of those starts, Ellis has not allowed an earned run and also tallied a complete-game shutout of Georgia State earlier this season.
The right-hander has posted 46 strikeouts and allowed only 22 walks with 14 earned runs in his 69.2 innings of work this season. Ellis has posted seven quality starts this season.
Trent also holds a 6-0 record on the year as the Saturday starter for the Rebels and has tallied nine quality starts. He also holds a 2.25 ERA this season and his 58 strikeouts and 72.0 innings of work leads the team in both categories. He also has held opponents to a team-best .223 batting average against while walking only 12 batters in his 11 starts.
The southpaw tossed a complete-game shutout of Auburn to help the Rebels post a series sweep of the Tigers, one of three series sweeps in SEC play this season for Ole Miss.
