[DAYTONA BEACH, FL] – Daytona Cubs pitcher Jeremy Papelbon has been named the Florida State League Pitcher of the Week for the week of August 11-17. Papelbon made two starts and went 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA in 11 innings of work. Papelbon also struck out five, while walking only one.

“It's a great honor,” Papelbon said about getting the award, “I'm feeling great. Throwing zeros up there always helps.”

Papelbon has been throwing up a lot of those zeros lately. After his August 17 start, Papelbon has now thrown 32 2/3 consecutive scoreless innings.

Papelbon made 34 appearances out of Daytona's bullpen this season before recently being moved into a starting role. When asked which was better, Papelbon said he does not have a preference. “As long as our team's winning it doesn't matter.”

This is the second time a Daytona pitcher has received pitcher of the week honors. The other Cubs pitcher to do it was Marco Carrillo, who was honored for the June 30 through July 6 week.
