Tommy Layne Gets FN's 'Under The Radar' Award For '15
The Editors of FenwayNation have named relief pitcher Tommy Layne as their 'Under The Radar' Award winner for 2015. The award recognizes that player who made "generally under-recognized contributions" to the success of the team. Layne pitched in 64 games for The Carmine Hose—throwing a total of 47 2/3 innings. He gave up just 41 hits and held opponents to a .234 average. He also struck out 45 batters. His 3.97 ERA was eighth best on the entire staff. The 30-year old lefty was one of the few bight spots in the Red Sox 'pen. Former 'Under The Radar' recipients were: pitcher Alex Wilson in 2014 and OF/IF Daniel Nava in 2013. Congratulations, Tommy on getting the 2015 honors!
