Lindsey Named NCBWA Co-Pitcher of the Week

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Tennessee baseball’s Andrew Lindsey was named a Dick Howser Trophy Player of the Week on Tuesday afternoon by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association following his tremendous outing in the series opener at South Carolina.

Lindsey, who shared the Co-Pitcher of the Week accolade with Southern Miss’s Tanner Hall, was also named SEC Pitcher of the Week on Monday. The two honors mark the first of his career.

The junior from New Johnsonville, Tennessee was terrific against the Gamecocks, firing a career-high 8.1 innings while allowing just three hits and no walks in a shutout, 5-0, victory. To cap off his excellent start, the right-hander set down the final 17 batters he faced.

Lindsey reeled in his third quality start of the year and improved to 2-2 on the season. His performance led the way for the Vols’ eighth shutout of the season, the third-best total in the country as of May 23.

With the honor, Lindsey becomes the 16th different Volunteer to earn National Player or Pitcher of the Week honors. His recognition marks the 19th time a Vol has garnered acclaim overall, and he is the first to do so this season after the 2022 squad had four different honorees. It also marks the first time in program history the Vols have had a National Player or Pitcher of the Week in three consecutive seasons.

Lindsey and the Vols will await their postseason destination for the 2023 NCAA Tournament. The Selection Show will air on Monday, May 29 at noon ET on ESPN2. The 16 regional host sites will be revealed on Sunday, May 28 through social media (@NCAABaseball) and on the ESPN bottom line beginning at 8:30 p.m. ET.
