Worth noting

• The Phillies announced their Minor League players of the month for April: outfielder Cameron Perkins and right-handed reliever Ken Giles. Both players are with Double-A Reading.

Giles converted seven saves in eight opportunities and posted a 1.38 ERA in 11 appearances. He struck out 25 against only four walks in 13 innings. Giles has limited opponents to a .174 average while averaging 17.31 strikeouts per nine innings pitched. He was invited to Major League Spring Training, but is not on the 40-man roster.

Perkins hit .382 with two home runs, 14 RBIs and a 1.023 OPS. He had at least one hit in 19 of 23 games played in April, including 13 multi-hit games.
