TN Player & Pitcher of the Week: Week 5

Hunter Martin
TN Scouting Director

Each week during the high school season, we will be announcing the Mizuno Pitcher and Player of the Week for that particular week. Numerous players across the state continue to put up impressive numbers both as position players and pitchers on the mound. This year we will be selecting one Pitcher of the Week and one Player of the Week based on nominations from high school coaches across the state. Thanks to Mizuno for sponsoring both awards this season. 

Check out our Scout Blog HERE for games our staff was able to get out and see this past week.  

Thanks to the many high school coaches that sent in nominations this week.  

Be on the lookout tomorrow for our Diamond Notes article that will highlight other players around the state who also had noteworthy performances.

Let's take a look at the Mizuno Player and Pitcher of the Week for Week 5 (April 8-14).



Tomas Valincius LHP / 1B / Baylor, TN / 2024

The Prep Baseball All-American had another strong perfromance yet again for his 2nd nomination for player of the week this season. He would go 4-7 at the plate with 3 HR's, 1 2B, 11 RBI's. On the mound, the number 1 ranked LHP would go 5 innings, giving up 1 hit, while going unassisted striking out 10 in route to a opening series win. 



Matthew Shorey LHP / Father Ryan, TN / 2024

The Vanderbilt University recruit has been lights out this season and last week was no different in a 9 1/3 innings effort striking out 21 hitters with 0 walks and only 2 hits given up in an extra inning conference game.
