Alen Hanson has been named the International League Player of the Month for May.
Hanson got off to a slow start in April, as he batted only .234 with a .549 OPS. The Pirates top infield prospect really caught fire in May, hitting .362 along with an OPS of .998, seven stolen bases and five triples. Entering June, Hanson has 89 total bases, which currently leads the IL.
