Gerrit Cole (33, New York Yankees), who closed the home run factory, became the pitcher who had the most outstanding month, beating Shohei Ohtani (29) and Sonny Gray (34).
The Major League Secretariat announced on the 4th (Korean time) that Cole was selected as the American League Pitcher of the Month. This is his 6th win in his personal career.
Previously, Cole received this award once in 2015, three times in 2019, and once in 2021. Member of the National League in 2015. He was also named Rookie of the Month in 2013.메이저놀이터
His grades were astonishing. Cole has pitched 40 2/3 innings in six starts over the past month, going 5-0 with a 1.11 ERA. 44 strikeouts.
What is even more surprising is that Cole, who hit 33 home runs last year, did not give up a home run while throwing 40 2/3 innings.
Cole did not hit a single home run in six innings, even in his first appearance of May, against the Cleveland Guardians. In other words, it is 46 2/3 innings without a run.
As a result, it seems that Cole was selected as the American League Pitcher of the Month, beating Ohtani, who had 11 hits in 34 innings, and Gray, who led the major league ERA.
Cole finished second in American League Cy Young Award voting in 2019 and 2021. In particular, the evaluation that the second place in 2019 was very disappointing.
It is noteworthy whether Cole, who showed amazing performance in the first month of his opening, will continue to show his current appearance and create his first Cy video season.
