So I think, for me, it'll come down to Juan Perez, Yorman, or Winker. Perez and Winker finished the month very strong. That said, it would seem kind of sad to pick a Player of the Month who batted below .300. I know that sounds like an old-school hangup; but really.
I am pretty sure the only two minor league regulars were Perez and Soto. The sticks got off to a poor start in April. Although lately they have seemed to be picking up the pace. Cover your eyes, Mace. Let's hope April 0'fers bring May gophers. LOL.
I haven't decided yet but I am leaning towards Juan Perez since he plays shortstop and Soto plays DH. Barnhart's bat is not up there with the others but it is rumored he handles the catching position pretty well.
Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
