I know it's June 3, but I've been busy getting sunburned. And now that we're back at it, it's time to name the Eddie's Farm Employees of the Month for May.
Position Player: Jason Bourgeois. This could have been between a few players (Johnson, Bogusevic, Castro, etc), but how do you not give it to a guy who hit .387/.421/.571 over 29 games in May? He only struck out 12 times in 119 ABs, and hit 13 extra-base hits.
Pitcher: Casey Daigle. Daigle pitched in 15.2IP (14 games) in May, allowing 3ER with 13K:3BB, posting a 1.72 ERA/1.15 WHIP.
Position Player: Jack Shuck. Shuck hit .317/.388/.423, with 15K:12BB in 28 games for the Hooks in May.
Pitcher: This was down to Arguello, Lyles, and Lumsden. But ultimately, Doug Arguello wins. Arguello went 4-1 with 8ER allowed in 36.1IP for a 1.98 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP in May.
Position Player: Mark Ori. Ori followed up an April in which he hit .275/.375/.319 by hitting .352/.364/.438 and 20RBI.
Pitcher: Dallas Keuchel. In six May starts, Keuchel had a 3.29 ERA (over three runs/9 better than April) and a 1.28 WHIP.
Position Player: J.D. Martinez. Hit .339/.411/.587 with 17 XBH-22RBI for the month. Posted a .940 OPS in April, and followed that up with a .998 OPS in May.
Pitcher: Robby Donovan. In 30IP in May, he was 3-1, allowing five earned runs for a 1.50 ERA/1.20 WHIP.
