Del Castillo Named ACC Player of the Week

by David Villavicencio

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – University of Miami catcher Adrian Del Castillo was named the ACC Player of the Week for April 5, as announced Monday by the conference office.

Del Castillo batted .471 (8-for-17) with three doubles, seven RBI and six runs scored to lead Miami to a 4-0 week that included an ACC series sweep of Duke.

The third-year catcher was 2-for-4 with three runs scored and a career-high four RBI in Miami’s 21-2 rout of FIU, and he keyed Miami’s series-clinching win over the Blue Devils on Saturday with a 3-for-5 effort that included a pair of RBI and two runs scored. He went 2-for-4 and drove in another run in Sunday’s win.

After his productive week, Del Castillo raised his season numbers to a .323 batting average, with six doubles, a triple, three homers and 21 RBI.

Del Castillo joins his older brother, outfielder Christian Del Castillo (Feb. 22), and right-hander Alejandro Rosario (March 15) as Hurricanes earning ACC weekly honors in 2021.

The Hurricanes return to action Wednesday, hosting crosstown foe FIU in a game slated for a 7 p.m. first pitch.
