The Brewers announced their Minor League Players of the Month on Thursday for the Month of April with Brevard County shortstop Angel Ortega being named the organization’s Player of the Month and Wisconsin right-hander Jon Perrin earning Pitcher of the Month honors.
Ortega, 22, has been one of the lone bright spots for the Manatees thus far. In 22 games last month, the former sixth round pick out of Puerto Rico hit .337 (29-for-86) with three doubles and eight runs batted in for Brevard County.
Perrin, 22, established himself as one of Wisconsin’s top arms in four April starts, going 1-0 with a 2.63 earned run average. The 27th round pick out of Oklahoma State allowed just seven earned runs in 24 innings of work, striking out 29 without issuing a single walk.
