National Names Rookie of Month
Sunday, August 1st, 2010
Brandon Roberts's eyes seem to light up whenever he sees the baseball. The young San Francisco center fielder has been hitting everything in sight for the better part of a month.

In July he was voted the Rookie of the Month Award.

During the month he hit .300 with 8 doubles, 1 triple and 7 home runs. Roberts also scored 20 times and drove in 15 runs.

In 86 games this season Roberts has compiled a .262 batting average with 70 hits and 16 home runs. He has also scored 49 times and knocked in 45 runs.
AL Selects Rookie Star of the Month
Sunday, August 1st, 2010
Shoeless Joe Jackson earned July's Rookie of the Month honors in the American for last month's performance. The boyish Oakland left fielder might be wet behind the ears, but he's proving that he has what it takes to play at this level.

Jackson hit .384 with 5 home runs, 19 RBIs and 23 runs scored this past month on his way to winning the award.

To date this year Jackson is batting .317 with 12 home runs.
Johnson Is July's Best NL Hurler
Sunday, August 1st, 2010
Walter Johnson took a much-deserved turn in the spotlight earlier today as he accepted the National Pitcher of the Month award for July.

The 22-year-old Astros starter is a relative newcomer to the league, but nonetheless racked up an impressive 6-0 won-lost record in 6 starts. This month he fanned 50 batters in 44.1 innings and compiled a 2.44 ERA.

This year Johnson has compiled a 15-1 record with a 2.81 ERA in 22 starts.
