After a stellar month of August, Spinners reliever Denyi Reyes has been named the New York-Penn League Player of the Month by Minor League Baseball.
Reyes, who signed with the Red Sox as an international free agent in 2014, led the league in wins (six), ERA (0.53), and WHIP (0.68) in the month of August. Over 33.2 innings, he struck out 32 and walked only one batter while holding opponents to just a .180 batting average. Reyes also led the league in wins (nine) and ERA (1.45) throughout the season and won his last seven decisions in a row.
Adding on to several other accolades throughout the season, Reyes was also named a New York-Penn League All-Star and also set the franchise record for consecutive scoreless innings with 26.2 innings from July 21st to August 20th.
Reyes becomes the third Spinner in franchise history to ever be named NYPL Player of the Month and the first pitcher to do so. Outfielder Tyler Hill became the first player to win the award in 2016 followed by third baseman Bobby Dalbec winning the award the following month.
