SWB RailRider Weissert Named International League Pitcher of the Year

Minor League Baseball announced its 2022 International League All-Stars and Greg Weissert was named as both the league’s Pitcher of the Year as well as the top relief pitcher. Weissert pitched in 42 games for the RailRiders this past season, going 2-1 with 18 saves and a 1.69 ERA while striking out 70 over 48 innings pitched.

Weissert is the first Scranton/Wilkes-Barre pitcher to earn the top league honor in two decades. Brandon Duckworth and Joe Roa took the top pitching honors in 2001 and 2002, respectively. The last SWB pitcher to earn any year-end award was Jonathan Albaladejo after his 43-save season in 2010.

Weissert was selected by the New York Yankees in the 18th round of the 2016 draft and made his Major League debut in August.

Durham’s Jonathan Aranda was honored as the league’s Most Valuable Player while Nashville’s Rick Sweet took the Manager of the Year award. Norfolk’s Gunnar Henderson was named the league’s top MLB Prospect.
