Brandon Morrow Named Jay Player of the Month

Here is the press release:



TORONTO BLUE JAYS RHP BRANDON MORROW was voted as the HONDA PLAYER OF THE MONTH for June by the TORONTO CHAPTER of the BBWAA. Honda, the official car of the Blue Jays, will make a donation to the charity of Brandon Morrow’s choosing.

        MORROW, 25 earned the honours over runner up John Buck, while LHP Ricky Romero also received significant votes. The right-hander started five games in June, recording a 1-2 record with a stellar 1.91 ERA, while holding opponents to a .218 average. The native of Santa Rosa, California posted quality starts in all five outings and allowed one run or less in three, highlighted by a 5-0 win over the Cardinals on June 24, where he tossed a career high eight shutout innings.

        BUCK, 29 finished second in the voting, after posting a .271 average with five home runs and 14 RBI in 21 June contests. The right-handed hitter leads all catchers in the Majors with 13 home runs and 40 RBI on the season.

Tom Back:  Morrow is deserving. Bautista won last month. I hope there isn't a jinx that goes along with the award.
