You expected, perhaps, someone different?
Starting pitcher Zac Gallen of the Arizona Diamondbacks has been voted the National League Pitcher of the Month for August. Gallen earned his first career NL Pitcher of the Month Award and is Arizona’s second consecutive recpient, following his rotation-mate Merrill Kelly. This marks the first time that Arizona has consecutive Pitcher of the Month Awards since Hall of Famer Randy Johnson and Curt Schilling in April-May 2002.
Here are the logs of Zac’s six outings this month:
It has been as impressive a run as I’ve seen from an Arizona pitcher in a long time, and the award is fully deserved. We’ll see if he can continue the run, when he pitches against the Milwaukee Brewers, in the series final on Sunday.
