Right-handed pitcher Jared Janczak (5-0) earned the Collegiate Baseball Newspaper National Player of the Week Monday afternoon. In addition to his National Player of the Week honor, Janczak was named the Big 12 Pitcher of the Week.

The redshirt sophomore from Belton, Texas retired the first 22 batters he faced and pitched eight no-hit innings at Lupton Stadium vs. the Kansas Jayhawks on Mar. 18,  striking out a career-high 14 batters to collect his fifth win of the season.

Janczak sits at a total of 38 strikeouts in the 34.1 innings he’s pitched during the 2017 season, posting a 2.36 ERA. He has only allowed 10 runs on 16 hits and nine walks in his starts this season.

TCU posted an 18-8 record in games Janczak pitched and a 5-2 record in games he started during his debut season in 2016. Janczak has become a part of the weekend starting rotation for the Frogs along with Nick Lodolo and Brian Howard.
