NPB pitcher of the month candidates

On Tuesday, May 9, NPB will announce the winners of its players and pitchers of the month for both the Central and Pacific Leagues.

As for pitchers, the selectors seem to look for starters with 3-plus wins and a maximum of one loss, and will sometime choose a reliever when there are no such starters. The table at below includes all such starters and relievers with 10-plus saves through April 30 in each league.
