Braves Veteran Lefty Named NL Pitcher of the Month by MLB

The Atlanta Braves didn’t have a great month of May, but it could have been worse.

The team went 13-14 in the month of May, and those wins that came were largely due to the efforts of the lefties in the rotation - the Braves went 8-2 in games starter by one of the duo of Max Fried and Chris Sale, quality work that led to the team naming them the “Strong Arm” Co-Pitchers of the Month for May over the weekend.

The recognition has kept coming with the news that MLB has named Chris Sale the National League’s Pitcher of the Month for May.
