Aroldis Chapman of the Cincinnati Reds named the Major League Baseball Delivery Man of the Month for August Aroldis Chapman of the Cincinnati Reds has been selected as the winner of the Major League Baseball Delivery Man of the Month Award for August, it was announced today. This Major League Baseball award recognizes the most outstanding relief pitcher during each month of the regular season as voted on by a panel from Major League Baseball.

It marks the second straight honor for Chapman, who becomes just the second pitcher to win the award in consecutive months, joining Tampa Bay’s Rafael Soriano, who accomplished the feat in July and August 2010.

Chapman went 1-0 with a 0.68 ERA over 13 appearances in August. The 24-year-old recorded a Major League-best 11 saves, successfully converting each of his opportunities while allowing just one run over 13.1 innings pitched. In addition, the hard-throwing left-hander permitted eight hits and walked two with 18 strikeouts.

Thoughts & prayers to Dusty Baker. Hope he's ok.

That being said, hope the Reds don't get far in the playoffs :)
