Darcy, a 23 year old out of Manhattan College, was a 38th round choice in the 2007 June Draft. He began the season as a reliever before moving to the starting rotation full time on May 24. Darcy was dominant in June, going 4-0 with a 1.53 ERA with 20 strikeouts and 4 walks in 29 and 1/3 innings while holding opponents to a .237 average. He opened June with a 16 and 2/3 inning streak without allowing an earned run and his 4 wins were a team high for the month as the Catfish went 16-10 in June. On the season, Darcy is 4-1 with a 2.63 ERA and has recorded 62 strikeouts and 11 walks in 82 innings.
The Catfish return to action tonight for the 2nd game of an 8-game homestand with a 7:00 pm contest against the Kannapolis Intimidators.
The Catfish are the Class-A affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays.
