Troy Conyers named to Stopper of the Year Watch List
April 27, 2017

NCBWA Release

SAN DIEGO, Calif. –
USD Baseball’s Troy Conyers was named to the National College Baseball Writer’s Association (NCBWA) Stopper of the Year Midseason Watch List. Conyers was one of 40 relievers from across the nation, and the only WCC representative, named to the list.

Conyers has been dominant for the Toreros in the closer role this season. He has racked up ten saves (14th in the nation) and posted a 2-0 record with a 1.67 ERA. In 32.1 innings, he has struck out 45 batters and walked just nine, while holding opposing hitters to a .233 average.

Conyers, who missed the 2015 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery, was a starter for the Toreros in the 2014 and 2016 season, but has fully embraced his new role this season.

“Since his Tommy John surgery, Troy seems to have really taken to this role as the team’s closer,” Head Coach Rich Hill said. “He is a great leader and his stuff plays up tremendously. Troy's always been super competitive. Whether playing ping-pong, bowling or closing a game in the ninth, he has a different look in his eye.”

Conyers’ ten saves are the most by a Torero pitcher in five years (Michael Wagner 19, 2012), and gives him the fifth-most in a season in program history.
