KIA Tigers second-year infielder Kim Do-young (19) aims for the monthly best player for the first time since his debut.
The Shell Helix Player Award is awarded to the pitcher and batter who ranked first in monthly win contribution (WAR) compared to replacement players. As of the 25th, Kim Do-young, with a WAR of 1.44, is in first place in the September hitter category.

In the pitching category, foreign pitchers from NC Dinos compete. Tanner Turley, with a WAR of 1.37, is in first place, and Eric Peddy, with a WAR of 1.355, is in second place.
Tanner pitched 25 innings in 4 games as a starting pitcher, recording 2 wins and an ERA of 0.72. Except for the game against KT Wiz on the 13th (2 runs in 6 innings), the team lasted 6 or more innings and did not give up a single point.
The average fastball speed recorded by Tanner in 7 games in the KBO League was 140.1 km/h. Although he is not a great pitcher, he pitches reliably and has consistently pitched over 6 innings.
As of the 25th, Peddie is the number one pitcher this season, ranking first in wins (19), ERA (2.13), and strikeouts (181). In the three games he pitched in September, he gave up only one run in 21 1/3 innings. He recorded 3 wins and an ERA of 0.42. Both Tanner and Peddie will make one more start this week. The final WAR leader is expected to be divided depending on the content of their pitches.
