Ortiz And Porcello Are FN 'Co-Players O' Month' For April

Porcello (L); Ortiz (R)
The editors of FenwayNation have selected David Ortiz and Rick Porcello as "Co-Players Of The Month" for April. Ortiz had a spectacular first month of his final season—hitting .321 with 5 HRs and 19 RBIs. The Boston DH also had 11 doubles, an on-base percentage of .418, a slugging percentage of .654 and an OPS of 1.071. Porcello continued his fine pitching from the end of last season, going 5-0 in April with a stellar 2.76 ERA. The right-hander walked just 6 batters in the month, while striking out 36. Porcello held opponents to a stingy .200 batting average and compiled a WHIP of 0.92. Congratulations to David and Rick as the FenwayNation Co-Players Of The Month!
