The Kansas City Royals announced that first baseman Eric Hosmer has been named Royals Majestic Player of the Month for April, while right-handed pitcher Wade Davis is the club's Pitcher of the Month. The player award is determined by a combined fan and media vote, with the pitcher award voted on by local media.
Hosmer led the club in hits (29), batting average (.326), on-base percentage (.368) in April and had a career-high 18-game hitting streak from April 10-29. This is his eighth career Royals Player of the Month honor and first since May of 2015.
Davis went 1-0 with seven saves in 8.2 scoreless innings last month, holding opponents to a .077 batting average (2-for-26). This is his sixth career Royals Pitcher of the Month honor after winning in April and July last season.
