Yes, we’re late posting these up. Sue me.
Gonna combine our Player of the Month awards for June into one post. Let’s start with the Reds Player of the Month for June 2010: Joey Votto.
Who else? Votto hit .314/.421/.608 in June, with 8 HR, 4 doubles, 22 RBI, and 17 walks. Toss in a couple of great clutch homers, and you have a fine month.
In the race for the Redleg Nation Minor League Players of the Month for June, we have two first-time winners.
Hitter of the Month
For the first time in 2010, a hitter other than Devin Mesoraco has won this award. Congratulations to Dayton’s Cameron Satterwhite. The 23 year old outfielder hit .374/.400/.626 in June, with 4 HR, 16 RBI, and 11 doubles. Great month!
Pitcher of the Month
June’s Minor League Pitcher of the Month is Lynchburg’s Donnie Joseph. The 22 year old lefthander posted a sterling 1.32 ERA on the month with a 0.80 WHIP and a K/BB ratio of 24 to 5.
