Carolina Relief Star Selected Best Pitcher
Tuesday, September 1st, 2037
Any time a rookie makes a splash on the scene, it's got to be great for his career potential. Just ask Nelson Vargas, who put together a stellar month out of the pen. The Carolina Breakers reliever, 26, kept the opposition off balance all month as he held them to a .077 average and walked away with the Southern League Pitcher of the Month award for August.

Vargas posted a 4-0 mark and a 0.50 ERA in no relief appearances. In 36.1 innings, he had no saves, 82 strikeouts, and 4 walks.

This year Vargas has no relief appearances with no saves, 8-6 season record and a 1.68 ERA. He has hurled 150 innings, given up 63 hits, struck out 294 and walked 29. Opposing clubs have batted .125 against the Carolina reliever.

In August, he topped off the month with a 5-0 mark and 1.69 ERA in 6 starts, tossed 37.1 innings, fanned 56 and held opposing teams to a .211 average.

In the current season in 14 starts, Bob Mangino has a record of 9-1 with 130 strikeouts in 84 innings and a 1.93 ERA.
