The competition was fierce in May, but the editors here at Redleg Nation have voted and determined that Chris Heisey and Travis Wood are May’s minor league players of the month.

Hitter of the Month: In the month of May alone, Heisey hit .404/.461/.614 with 4 homeruns and 17 rbis.  He also tallied 10 doubles, a triple, scored 21 runs, and stole 3 bases.  He drew 12 walks compared to just 9 strikeouts for the month.  Congratulations to Chris for a fine month of May. 

Also receiving consideration: Yonder Alonso and Cody Puckett

Pitcher of the Month: Travis Wood was nearly a unanimous choice by the editors here, despite the fact that the Reds had some outstanding pitching numbers in the minors this month.  In May, Wood went 4-0 with a 1.93 ERA in 6 starts.  Travis struck out 31 and allowed 16 walks in 37.1 innings pitched.  For the season, Wood is now 4-3 with a microscopic 1.53 Earned Run Average.  Congratulations to Travis for his outstanding performance in May.
