Preston Morrison named Big 12 Pitcher of the Year

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

Morrison, Brandon Finnegan, Riley Ferrell and Boomer White were all awarded First team selections.

Not that this is any sort of surprise, but Preston Morrison has been named Big 12 Pitcher of the Year. The junior finished the regular season 8-3 and a league leading 1.18 ERA. P-Mo also tallied 70 strikeouts in just under 100 innings.

This is his second time be awarded pitcher of the year, as Morrison won his first as a freshman when TCU was still in the Mountain West.

In addition to Morrison; Brandon Finnegan, Riley Ferrell and Boomer White were all Big 12 First team selections as well. But the biggest snub went to Tyler Alexander, who despite having a monstrous second half and playing a huge role in TCU's surge, was only named to the Second team. It would seem Alexander was also a worthy candidate for Newcomer of the year, but that went to Adam Kirsch of Texas Tech.

The Frogs kick off the conference tournament tomorrow against Baylor. A strong Big 12 tournament showing still gives TCU hope in getting earning a National seed. But more on that later.

In the meantime, let's give it up for Morrison and the rest of this 2014 team.
