For the third consecutive month, New York Mets reliever Edwin Díaz was named National League Reliever of the Month.
Díaz has been named Reliever of the Month eight times (five in the American League and three in the National League) since the award was established in 2017, the most of any pitcher.
In August, the hard-throwing righty went 6-for-6 in save chances and struck out 16 batters while allowing only one run (0.84 ERA) over 10 2/3 innings.
