Dylan Cease wins AL Pitcher of the Month again for July
With all the trouble that the Chicago White Sox have been having, there is one big bright spot that they can look at and feel proud of. Starting pitcher Dylan Cease has won his second American League Pitcher of the Month award in a row for the 2022 season, thus proving that he is one of the best pitchers in the American League.
Cease has clearly had a strong showing these last couple of months and the White Sox are lucky to have him. The numbers that Cease has put up are impressive. He currently has an ERA of 2.01. He has won 11 games and lost just four in 21 starts.
His WHIP currently stands at 1.17 and he has allowed a total of 87 hits in 116.2 innings pitched. Cease has allowed 26 earned runs and just nine home runs this season so far. He has been nothing short of spectacular.
Easily the most reliable pitcher on the team, Cease has a couple more months to continue his fine play and if he can keep it up, he should easily be in consideration for the American League Cy Young trophy.
In fact, he should be a very strong candidate for one of the highest honors that can be bestowed upon a pitcher (the MVP honors that usually go to hitters). Cease is so talented so the Cy Young is not out of the question at all.
The Chicago White Sox really needs to see Dylan Cease keep it up going forward.
Chicago needs all the help that it can get on its pitching staff as they have struggled this season. Cease has been their star.
Johnny Cueto has also been a strong pitcher while Lucas Giolito and Lance Lynn have had their struggles. And then there was Dallas Keuchel who was DFA’d after struggling to start the season.
Cease is the model of consistency on this team. When you look at the team, Cease is its best, most consistent, and most productive player. He’s the core that the team needs to build itself around to become a winning franchise.
We know that they need all the help they can get, especially after their near-stagnant trade deadline participation. Cease is the one this team is centered around. There isn’t another player like him on the roster.
