Ex-Wahoo Wilson Named Orioles' Top Minor League Pitcher

Former Virginia pitcher Tyler Wilson's breakout season in the Baltimore Orioles' farm system has been capped with the award for the organization's top minor league pitcher.

The Orioles announced their minor league award winners on Thursday, with Wilson the recipient of the Jim Palmer Minor League Pitcher of the Year. Wilson split the season between Double-A Bowie and Triple-A Norfolk, and finished the year a combined 14-8 with a 3.67 ERA in 166.2 innings. His 14 total wins led the organization, as did his 157 strikeouts.

Wilson was selected by the Orioles in Round 10 of the 2011 MLB Draft, the same year he helped the Cavaliers reach the College World Series. Earlier this summer, MLB.com included Wilson at No. 16 on its mid-season list of the Top 20 prospects in the Orioles organization.
