Hader Wins Weekly AFL Award

Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Josh Hader was honored on Tuesday as the Pitcher of the Week in the Arizona Fall League for last week after going four scoreless innings and allowing just one hit while striking out seven for the Surprise Saguaros.

One of four players acquired by Milwaukee in a late July trade that shipped outfielder Carlos Gomez and pitcher Mike Fiers to the Houston Astros, Hader appeared in seven games for Double-A Biloxi following the trade and posted a 2.79 ERA, racking up 50 strikeouts in 38.2 innings of work.

In five fall league appearances, Hader has allowed just one run in ten innings, for a 0.90 earned run average. The 21-year-old lefty has recorded 15 strikeouts while allowing only four hits and walking four batters.
