More awards

The Class A Carolina League named their season-ending awards on Wednesday and settled on a pair of Oriole prospects as their Player and Pitcher of the Year. First baseman Brandon Waring won the former award, while Zach Britton won the latter.

Britton, a third-round draftee in 2006, went 9-6 with a 2.70 for Class A Frederick this season. Britton allowed just six home runs in 140 innings, striking out 131 batters against 55 walks.

Waring, who was acquired from the Reds in last winter’s Ramon Hernandez trade, batted .273 with 26 home runs, 90 RBIs and 70 runs scored for Frederick this season.
