FORT MYERS, Fla. - Twins' pitching prospect David Festa has been named the Florida State League Pitcher of the Week and has also been promoted to High-A Cedar Rapids.

Festa spun six hitless innings Tuesday against Palm Beach, leading the Mighty Mussels to their fifth no-hitter in franchise history. Over five starts this season, the New Jersey native has registered a 1.50 ERA while striking out 33 batters in 24 innings.

The Seton Hall product has limited the opposition to a .148 batting average while walking only six (0.75 WHIP). Over his last three outings, Festa has allowed just one earned run on four hits over 14 innings (0.64 ERA, 20 K, 5 BB).

In all five outings, Festa has averaged above 95.0 mph on his fastball, and topped out 99.1 mph on Tuesday.

The Twins have not announced any corresponding moves affecting Fort Myers, so the Mussels' current roster stands at 27 players, three below the FSL maximum.
