Minor League Baseball announced the Players of the Month for each league on Thursday morning. The Pittsburgh Pirates were represented on that list by outfielder Jonah Davis of the Greensboro Grasshoppers, who was named as the South Atlantic League Player of the Month for August.
Davis hit .318/.383/.654 in 26 games in August, with six doubles, ten homers, 24 runs scored and 17 RBIs. He opened August with the SAL’s Player of the Week award. After a very slow start to the season, he finished the year with a .239/.324/.470 slash line in 85 games (five with Morgantown). The 22-year-old Davis hit 15 doubles, two triples and 19 homers.
He was the runner-up in our Player of the Month award to his teammate Ji-Hwan Bae.
