Cedar Rapids Kernels pitcher Randy LeBlanc was named the May Player of the Month by Minor League Baseball this week.
LeBlanc, who was recently promoted to Ft. Myers, went 4-0 with a 0.24 ERA in five starts. In 37 innings pitched, he allowed one run on 24 hits, striking out 21 and walking just six. He held opposing batters to just .185 batting average during May.
LeBlanc, as Player of the Month, joins fellow pitcher Fernando Romero and catcher A.J. Murray, who received Midwest League Player and Pitcher of the Week awards during the month of May.
