This season Ciurcina is off to a nearly perfect start with a 0.00 ERA in 14 innings with only 4 hits, 12 strikeouts and no walks. On Wednesday, Ciurcina made his second start of the season against the DSL Orioles. He pitched 7.0 shutout innings with only 1 hit, 10 strikeouts and no walks. That type of dominating start is worthy of recognition as this week's Prospect of the Week. If he continues to pitch as he has the first two weeks of the season, Ciurcina will be another player that we will hear a lot about when he moves up to the GCL Twins next season.
