Harper, Gonzalez Earn MLB Honors

Washington Nationals starting pitcher Gio Gonzalez and outfielder Bryce Harper earned All-MLB honors due to their performance last month.

Throughout the month of May, Gonzalez was dominant. He went 5-0 with a 2.25 ERA with an NL best 45 strikeouts. Gonzalez is the second Nationals pitcher to win the award after Strasburg won for the month of April.

Bryce Harper was named NL Rookie of the Month for the month of May. In 107 at-bats, Harper batted .271 with four home runs and ten RBI.

Both players can this to their already impressive All-Star resumes. Following May, Gonzalez and Harper should both be seriously considered for the All-Star game.
