3G 19 innings without a run, Kim Kwang-hyun, a candidate for pitcher of the month, is the U.S. media.
Kim Kwang-hyun (33, St. Louis Cardinals) is drawing attention as a strong candidate for the pitcher of the month.
MLB Network picked six pitchers for July on the 21st (Korea time).
Kim Kwang-hyun was the first candidate to be named.
Kim Kwang-hyun has been showing the appearance of “Invincible” since July. He pitched in three games and blocked 19 innings without a run. He also took victory whenever he took the mound.
During this period, he met the “strongest” San Francisco Giants, who topped the overall Major League winning rate, twice, but both of them fell silent and continued their brilliant pitching.
Among the six pitchers nominated, Kim Kwang-hyun is the only one who is on a no-run march this month.
Willy Peralta (Detroit Tigers) had one earned run in 19 innings, while Corbin Burns (Milwaukee Brewers) had two earned runs in 21이닝 innings.
Robbie Ray (Toronto Blue Jays) had two earned runs in 20 innings and Chris Flexen (Seattle Mariners) had two earned runs in 20 innings. Lance Lynn (Chicago White Sox) had three earned runs in 19 innings.
Kim Kwang-hyun, who is showing an unrivaled pace, has to continue his current pace in the remaining two games in July to win the pitcher of the month.
Kim Kwang-hyun, who will start against the Chicago Cubs on the 23rd, is expected to take the mound again in July.
If Kim Kwang-hyun is selected as the pitcher of the month, he will be the third South Korean pitcher in history.
Park Chan-ho (then Los Angeles Dodgers) in July 1998 and Ryu Hyun-jin (Toronto Blue Jays) in May 2019 were pitchers of the month.
