The Candidates: Nevin Ashley, Greg Sexton, Cody Cipriano. Ashley put up a .275/.351/.451 line over 51 AB's with 4 walks and 12 strikeouts. Sexton hit for a .319/.366/.389 line in 72 AB's with 6 walks and 8 strikeouts and was 2-4 in SB's. Cipriano hit .298/.400/.489 in 47 AB's with 8 walks and 12 strikeouts and was 2-3 in SB's.
The Winner: Cody Cipriano. Not a great month, but the best on the team in April. The 24 year-old was drafted by the Rays in the ninth round of the 2007 draft out of UC Irvine. Last year for the Columbus Catfish in 149 AB's he only hit .195/.320/.376, so it's nice to see him get off to a good start.
