If Jose Bautista keeps this up, he’s going to need to start wearing a flame retardant uniform.
Bautista was awarded the Blue Jays Honda Player of the Month thanks to his incredible month of May. He not only tied the franchise record for home runs in a month with 12, but he also drove in 25 runs while posting a .287 batting average and .422 on base percentage.
This award was voted on by the Toronto chapter of the BBWAA, however Bautista is still a favourite to win the American League Player of the Month award for May which hasn’t been announced as of yet.
On behalf of the Bautista Appreciation Society, congratulations Jose on a job well done. Hopefully this will help him gain even more exposure and garner some more votes into the All-Star Game.
