JOHNSON NAMED NL PLAYER OF THE MONTH FOR APRIL
May 3, 2010 – Arizona Diamondbacks second baseman Kelly Johnson has been named National League Player of the Month for April.
In his first month with the Diamondbacks, Johnson had the best April of his career, leading the National League with nine home runs and a .750 slugging percentage. In 22 games, Johnson batted .313 (25-80) with 18 RBI, 17 runs scored and a .404 OBP. His eight doubles were most among NL second basemen while his nine homers tied Steve Finley (2000) and Richie Sexson (2004) for the second-highest April totals in D-backs' franchise history (Luis Gonzalez’s 13 HR in April, 2001 are first).
