This marks the second time in his career that Nova has won the monthly honor. He was named American League Pitcher-of-the-Month in August 2013 after going 4-0 with a 2.08 ERA in six starts with the Yankees.
Gerrit Cole was the last Pittsburgh pitcher to be named N.L. Pitcher-of-the-Month, having done so in April 2015.
In recognition of the award, Nova will receive a specially designed trophy, suitably engraved, for his accomplishment.
