University of Virginia senior pitcher Justin Thompson (Saratoga 2009) has been named to the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) Midseason Stopper of the Year Watch List. The Stopper of the Year award, given by the NCWBA, is presented to the top relief pitcher in NCAA Division I college baseball.

Overall, 45 Division I pitchers comprise the Midseason Watch List. Thompson is one of five pitchers from the Atlantic Coast Conference. The full list can be viewed here.

The 6-foot-1 senior from Danville, Va., is the closer for the Cavaliers. Heading into the weekend of Apr. 20 through Apr. 22, Thompson is 2-1 with seven saves and a 1.61 earned run average. He has struck out 23 batters in 22.1 innings pitched and has held opponents to a .235 batting average. The senior leads Virginia in appearances and saves and he is second on the team in ERA. Thompson’s seven saves rank him among the top 50 in saves nationally. Against ACC opponents, the Hoos’ closer has five saves in 13 appearances.

Thompson, who was not mentioned on the Stopper of the Year Preseason Watch List, has not allowed a run since April 1 and he has been tagged with an earned run in just three of his 20 outings.

The Danville, Va., native pitched for the Oneonta Outlaws in 2009 when they were known as the Saratoga Phillies. Thompson went 2-0 with a 3.46 earned run average for the Phillies under head coach Greg Zackrison.

The finalists for the Stopper of the Year award will be released on June 6. The winner will be announced prior to the start of the NCAA Division I Super Regionals.
