2022 DiamondDawgs pitcher Troy Butler was named by Perfect Game USA as the #1 Major League Baseball Prospect of the PGCBL! Butler, who transferred to Herkimer College from Binghamton this year, was up to 96 mph this summer while sitting more in the 91-93 mph range. Butler threw 42 innings for Mohawk Valley this summer, striking out 57 and throwing to the tune of a 3.21 ERA. The 57 punchouts paced the league. He paired the fastball with a plus slider with late bite that garners its fair share of swing-and-miss. Butler earned a call-up to the Cape Cod League in August and spent the remainder of the summer throwing for Brewster.
