• Batted .378 (34-for-90) with 24 runs scored, six doubles, nine home runs, 20 RBI, 15 walks, three stolen bases and a .744 slugging percentage over 24 games.

• Began his award-winning month in grand fashion, logging a season-best 16-game hitting streak from September 1st-18th. Was the longest streak by a Ray since his teammate Tommy Pham notched a 17-game streak last season from August 21st-September 14th.

• Finished his breakout season with 33 round-trippers on the season. Became the second-youngest player in franchise history to reach the 30-homer mark, older than just Evan Longoria, who launched 33 homers as a 23-year-old in 2009.

• His nine home runs this season against left-handed pitching were the most by a lefty slugger since Carlos Peña launched a Club-record 12 in 2009.

Others receiving votes for AL Player of the Month included All-Star third baseman Alex Bregman (.333, 7 2B, 9 HR, 18 RBI) of the Houston Astros; shortstop Marcus Semien (.347, 35 H, 9 2B, 8 HR) of the Oakland Athletics; outfielder Jorge Soler (.330, 21 R, 10 HR, 20 RBI) of the Kansas City Royals, who finished the 2019 season with 48 home runs and set a new single-season franchise home run record, as well as the most home runs by a Cuban-born player; the 2019 American League batting champion, shortstop Tim Anderson (.374, 37 H, 7 2B, 4 HR), September’s AL Rookie of the Month Eloy Jiménez (.340, 8 2B, 9 HR, 25 RBI) and infielder Yoán Moncada (.412, 21 R, 42 H, 11 2B) of the Chicago White Sox; outfielder Trey Mancini (.365, 38 H, 8 2B, 6 HR) of the Baltimore Orioles; and outfielder Brett Gardner (16 R, 22 H, 10 HR, 20 RBI) of the New York Yankees.
