KT Wiz William Cuevas (32) has been named the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the 2023 KBO League for the month of August.
“Cuevas, who received 25 out of 30 votes (83.3 percent) 카지노사이트from journalists and 23,562 out of 392,207 fan votes (6 percent) for a total score of 44.40, was named the monthly MVP for the first time individually and for the first time in nearly two years for a KT player since Ko Young-pyo in September 2021,” the KBO said in a press release on August 11. Topping the fan vote was Hanwha Eagles’ Roh Si-hwan (170,674 votes). Noh, who was the MVP in July, hit eight home runs in August.
Cuevas had a dominant month of August, pitching seven or more innings in all five of his starts and posting a Quality Start Plus (seven or more innings pitched and three or fewer earned runs allowed). In 36 innings pitched, he allowed just two earned runs for a 0.50 ERA. With Cuevas anchoring the lineup, Katie was able to move up to the No. 2 spot.
Cuevas returned to the Katy uniform in early June. He had played for Katie since 2019, but was released during the season last May due to an elbow injury. He was reacquired by the Katies this year when Bo Schuler struggled and has since gone 8-0 with a 3.09 ERA in 14 starts. If he can post two or more wins without a loss, he’ll be in the running for the “100% Win Rate” award (for pitchers with 10 or more wins).
Meanwhile, Cuevas, the August Monthly MVP, will receive a cash prize of 2 million won.
