However, the award was not the only award for the Venezuelan. He allowed no earned runs and lowered his ERA to 1.37 in 59 innings of work.

According to journalist Sarah Langs, his is the lowest earned streak average for a “Quakers” pitcher in his first nine starts of the campaign. That's since the earned run became an official statistic in 1912 for the National League.

However, he is also the first Venezuelan pitcher with eight favorable decisions in that number of outings and so far he is heading towards what would be a historic season not only for Venezuela, but for the Phillies, who have seen how Ranger Suárez has been the most dominant in a rotation that includes Zack Wheeler and Aaron Nola, who combined with Larense have added 17 victories so far this season.

Now, his dominance has been such that he has managed to minimize the connections of his opponents, who barely hit .171 against him; the lowest average in all of baseball, behind Tyler Glasnow (.169) and Dylan Cease (.141). Meanwhile, his walk rate is 4.1% and his strikeout rate (28.1%) is the highest of his career.
