Kentucky pitcher named a summer league All-Star

Kentucky sophomore righty Chandler Shepherd has been named a Cape Cod League All-Star, it was announced by the Cape Cod Collegiate Baseball League Saturday. He joins a number of former Wildcats to earn the honor over the last seven years, including Trevor Gott (2011), Taylor Rogers (2011), Braden Kapteyn (2010), Chad Wright (2010), Chris Bisson (2009), Keenan Wiley (2008), Collin Cowgill (2007), and Antone DeJesus (2007).

Shepherd has started five games for the Harwich Mariners, and is teamed up with fellow Wildcat A.J. Reed. He has recorded a 2-2 record with an astounding 0.93 ERA – fourth-best in the league – in 29 innings, allowing just 16 hits and seven walks while striking out 27.

As a key cog in one of the best bullpens in Kentucky history, Shepherd posted a 5-0 record in 55.1 innings to go along with a solid 2.77 ERA with recording 39 strikeouts.

He will return to the Wildcats pen in 2014 as a key veteran, and hopefully help to lead the Cats to a rebound from a disappointing 2013 season.

    The people up here in the New England area breath baseball like how we Kentuckians breath basketball. The Cape Cod is the premier summer league hands down and this is a huge honor for Chandler! Congrats, man!
