Shaw, Ortiz, Bradley Jr. Are All Tearing It Up This August

It looks like the race to become FenwayNation's August Player Of The Month will take place among three Red Sox players: Travis Shaw, David Ortiz and Jackie Bradley, Jr. As the chart shows, all three are well-positioned to capture the honor, but the eventual winner will need to be consistently productive over the next twelve days. Both Shaw and Ortiz have five HRs already this month—while Bradley, Jr. has ten extra-base hits (including three HRs). All three currently have OPS numbers in excess of 1.100.
