Greenville, N.C. (NCBWA) -- Creighton baseball senior reliever John Sakowski is one of 70 players named to the 16th Annual National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) Preseason Stopper of the Year Watch List on Monday, Feb. 10th. Expected to anchor the Bluejays' bullpen this season, Sakowski was 7-1 with a 2.83 ERA in 47.2 innings last season.
