Coca Cola® Cape League Pitcher of the Week: Mitchell Jordan – Stetson University, RHP, Orleans Firebirds

For the second time this season, and in just the fourth week since Opening Day, Orleans Firebirds’ righty ace Mitchell Jordan has stepped to the forefront with his second nod as Coca Cola Pitcher of the Week. Leading the Cape League in earned run average (0.00) and strikeouts (31), Stetson University’s Mitchell Jordan paved the way for the Firebirds’ victory against Harwich last Monday, when he struck out eight Mariners and allowed no earned runs in six innings of work. On Sunday, he struck out six and kept the Wareham Gatemen off the board.

A native of Longwood, Fla., Jordan enjoyed a strong high school career at Lake Brantley High and was a two-letter winner, leading his team to 27-3 record and Class 8A state title during his senior campaign. In his freshman season at Stetson, Jordan appeared on the mound 22 times, finishing third on the team with 50 strikeouts in 2014.
