INDIANAPOLIS — Relief pitcher Vic Black has been named the Indianapolis Indians’ Player of the Month for April. He will accept the award – a custom-made watch courtesy of Windsor Jewelry – before tonight’s home contest against the Toledo Mud Hens.
Black was one of the most consistent arms out of the Tribe’s bullpen in April, converting six of seven save opportunities while posting a 2.93 ERA (5 ER in 15.1 IP), 1.04 WHIP and 24 strikeouts to just seven walks. The right-hander’s six saves were the third most in the International League during the month, and his 11 appearances were tied for second among all IL hurlers as well.
