Rookie Ryan Groth of the Rays put some charges into the ball this month. He hit 0.455, leading the league in slugging percentage at 0.909 and yielding a 1.534 OPS (2nd). He was also one of four players with a homer among his 10 total bases (T-3rd), a triple, and seven runs scored (T-3rd).

Royals’ smooth-swinging lefty Chazz Ishikawa topped the league in average (0.600), on-base percentage (0.750), and OPS (1.650) this month. He scored seven times (T-3rd), drove in eight (2nd), and swiped a bag along the way, all in only 10 ABs (fewest on this list).

The Dirtbags made it difficult to choose a contender this month, but Keoni Luft is more than deserving. In five games, he led the league in total bases (12) and hit 0.500/0.500/0.857, yielding the 3rd-best OPS of the month. Hitting his first career HR helped! He added three runs, six RBIs (T-3rd), and 3 SBs to cap off a great offensive month for the Dirtbags.
