Nathan Eovaldi, 34, who was widely considered a mistake by the Texas Rangers when he was signed, has been named the hottest pitcher of the month after a remarkable run.
The Major League Baseball office announced on Wednesday that Iboldi was named the American League Pitcher of the Month. It’s his first career honor.
Iboldi pitched 37 2/3 innings in five games over the past month, going 4-0 with a 0.96 ERA. He struck out 31 batters.
After starting off the month with a complete game shutout in his last outing in April, Iboldi kept the momentum going with eight shutout innings in his first start of May.
Since then, Iboldi has pitched 8 2/3 scoreless innings, seven scoreless innings, three scoreless innings, nine scoreless innings, and five scoreless innings to make it a beautiful May. Three dominant starts.
Thus, through the last two days, Iboldi has pitched 74 1/3 innings in 11 games this season, with a 7-2 record and a 2.42 ERA. He has 70 strikeouts.
That’s enough to put him in the conversation for the Cy Young Award. If Iboldi continues this performance, it will be a career high.먹튀검증
Iboldi’s performance has also been reflected in the team’s performance. Texas is in first place in the American League West with a 35-20 record and a .636 winning percentage through the last two days.
