Todd Redmond Named Southern League Pitcher of the Week

The accolades just keep coming for the M-Braves this year. Last week Kris Medlen was named Southern League Pitcher of the Week, and this week the honor goes to Todd Redmond. From the official release:

Redmond did everything but record a win on Friday against the Carolina Mudcats.
 
The 23-year-old allowed just one hit - a single - without permitting a run in a season high-tying eight innings before departing with a two-run lead.
 
In the ninth, the league's Hitter of the Week spoiled Redmond's chance at a league high-tying ninth win with a go-ahead, three-run homer. Despite not getting a decision, Redmond recorded six strikeouts to move into third in the league with 97 overall.
 
The native of St. Petersburg, FL also lowered his ERA to 3.34, good for eighth in the circuit. It was the second impressive showing during the week for Redmond, who pitched a flawless inning with one strikeout in the Southern League All-Star Game on July 14.

Maybe in a few years we'll be able to look back and say that the best thing Tyler Yates ever did for the Braves was get traded for Todd Redmond. (Some people are probably saying that right now.)
