Flanagan, Tredwell Named to Stopper of the Year Midseason Watch List

Apr 27, 2022

LOS ANGELES – The National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association on Wednesday announced that UCLA freshman pitchers Ethan Flanagan and Alonzo Tredwell have both been named to the 2022 Stopper of the Year Midseason Watch List.

UCLA tied for the national lead with two members on the watch list, joining Michigan, Arizona, and North Dakota State.

The NCBWA will announce the finalists for the award on Jun. 8, with the winner being named on Jun. 17 at the 2022 College World Series.

The Bruins have had three Stopper of the Year winners since the award's inception in 2005, tied with Texas for the most of any school nationwide. David Berg (2013, 2015) remains the only two-time winner of the award, and Holden Powell took home the honor in 2019.

As of Apr. 27, Flanagan holds a 3-0 record with a 1.88 ERA and 50 strikeouts in 38 1/3 innings. He is just one off the team lead for strikeouts, despite throwing 8 2/3 fewer innings than the leader, and allowed just one run over his first 14 collegiate innings.

Tredwell meanwhile co-leads the team with two saves (alongside Flanagan and freshman lefty Gage Jump) and holds a 2.25 ERA with 34 strikeouts in 20 innings. He was scored on in just two appearances from Feb. 22 to Apr. 23. Particular standout efforts included Feb. 22 against Pepperdine (2.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 7 K) and Mar. 6 against then-No. 1 Texas (3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 5 K).
