White Sox farmhand Stephen McCray has been named the Arizona Fall League’s pitcher of the week.

McCray, 26, earned a victory with a perfect four-inning start last week for the Glendale Desert Dogs. The right-hander struck out two and needed only 38 pitches to retire all 12 batters he faced.

McCray — a 16th round pick out of Tennessee in 2010 — is 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA and four strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings in AFL play. He has a 28-22 record with a 3.52 ERA in 93 minor-league games for the White Sox.

St. Louis Cardinals minor-leaguer Stephen Piscotty was the AFL player of the week.
