Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher Jeremy Hellickson has been voted the American League Pitcher of the Month for May.

Hellickson received a specially designed trophy, suitably engraved for his accomplishment.

The Rays’rookie had a 4-1 record with a 1.36 ERA in five starts, leading all Major League rookies in wins for the month and finished tied for first among all A.L. pitchers. His 1.36 ERA was third-best in the league and was the second-lowest May ERA in franchise history, trailing Scott Kazmir’s 1.22 ERA in 2008. It is the third-lowest ERA of any month in club history, trailing only Kazmir and Matt Garza (1.27 in August of 2010).

The 24-year-old allowed six runs (five earned) on 19 hits with 23 strikeouts, 15 walks and a .168 opponent batting average in 33.0 innings. the right-hander allowed the fewest hits among all A.L. starting pitchers with at least 32.0 innings of work and was seventh-lowest among all A.L. hurlers.

The Des Moines, Iowa native held the opposition to five hits or less in all five of his May starts.

Hellickson was the Rays’ fourth round pick in the 2005 First-Year Player Draft.
