Matt Gorski Named as South Atlantic League Player of the Month

MiLB announced the monthly award winners around the minors yesterday, and the Pittsburgh Pirates were represented on that list by outfielder Matt Gorski. He won for the High-A South Atlantic League, though he’s been with Double-A Altoona for nearly two weeks. Gorski was recently named as the Pirates Prospect Player of the Month for May.

Gorski only needed three weeks to win this award, but he had quite the three weeks. He was named as the Player of the Week by both us and the SAL during his final week in the league, after hitting eight homers and putting up a 1.980 OPS. He hit .328/.408/1.000 in 18 games for Greensboro in May, and led the SAL in homers, RBIs, slugging percentage, OPS and total bases. Through Thursday night’s results, he was hitting .288/.379/.686 in 45 games this year, with 18 homers and 11 steals in 12 attempts.

Hope he does well enough with Altoona to do it again.

If you saw this coming, you are qualified to become a scout. Congratulations!

Hé wasn’t in the main FanGraphs list and was described as a Tumbler.
