The International League announced on Tuesday afternoon that Jose Osuna has been named as the league’s Player of the Month for April.
Osuna hit .361/.412/.656 in 17 games last month for Indianapolis, while also spending a day in the majors last week (where he hit a three-run homer). He ranks fourth in the league in average, seventh in on base percentage, first in slugging and first in OPS. He ranks second in the league with nine doubles, one behind teammate Eric Wood, and second with three homers.
Osuna has been playing almost exclusively at third base this season and has committed just one error in 37 chances over 16 starts. His only other appearance was in right field, where he also played for the Pirates in his one game this season.
For our own Player of the Month voting earlier today, Osuna finished second only to Calvin Mitchell in the entire farm system.
