MEMPHIS, Tennessee - Memphis Redbirds outfielder Randy Arozarena has been named the St. Louis Cardinals Minor League Player of the Month for July, the organization announced Friday.
In 26 games in the month at Memphis, Arozarena hit .378 with three home runs, 10 doubles, 14 RBI, and three stolen bases. He reached base at a .455 clip and slugged .592 during the month, posting a 1.047 OPS.
After posting a slash-line of .378/.455/.592/1.047 in 26 games in June between Memphis and Double-A Springfield, Arozarena continued his torrid form in July, hitting in 19-of-26 games and having multi-hit performances in 12 of those contests. As of last night, the Havana, Cuba, native has reached base safely in his last 30 starts, dating back to June 26.
On July 26 at Oklahoma City, he became the third Redbird in franchise history to hit for the cycle, accomplishing the feat in his first four at-bats of the game by the fifth inning.
This is Arozarena's third-career monthly honor from the Cardinals, as he was also honored in June 2017 while playing for Advanced-A Palm Beach.
Johnson City pitcher Michael YaSenka earned this month's pitching honors from the Cardinals alongside Arozarena.
Arozarena and the Redbirds take on El Paso tonight to start a four-game series with the Chihuahuas before hitting the west coast for a seven-game road trip, starting with a three-game series with the Sacramento River Cats on Wednesday.
