Baltimore Orioles 1B Travis Ishikawa was named the TOPPS Triple-A player of the month for May after posting a .413 batting average with 24 RBI, a .489 on-base percentage and .787 slugging percentage. He collected hits in 18 of his 21 games. Ishikawa extended the opt-out clause in his contract in mid-May, but the new date is set for Saturday, June 15.
Fantasy Tip: Ishikawa might be worth a look in AL-only fantasy leagues if he gets a shot at semi-regular at-bats with Baltimore. He could even help out as the designated hitter, as manager Buck Showalter hasn't gotten a lot of consistency out of that spot this season.
