For all his hard work in the month of April, Richmond was rewarded by being named American League Rookie of the Month. Richmond posted a 3-0 record in 4 starts in the month of April, with an ERA of 2.70.
If it wasn’t for the oblique injury to Ricky Romero, we could be having the argument about whether Richmond or Romero had the better start to the season. But despite all that, Scott Richmond continues to exceed expectations, brought in as the fifth starter and has quickly soared up the Blue Jays starting rotation depth chart.
Congratulations on your Rookie of the Month award Scott, we believed in you all along! As a reward, we’ll be sending you a $25 gift card for the LCBO. Feel free to use it on any alcohol to spike the Kool-Aid, if you so choose.
