Yomiuri Giants lefty Kazuto Taguchi was recognized for his sparkling record in July by being named the Central League’s pitcher of the month on Friday.

The 20-year-old Taguchi, the Giants’ third-round draft pick in 2013, went 3-0 with a 1.14 ERA and 19 strikeouts in 23-2/3 innings. He was joined on July’s Central League honor roll by Yokohama BayStars slugger Yoshitomo Tsutsugo, who is a two-time winner.
