White Sox award Adolfo, Geurrero with Minor League monthly honors

The White Sox honored outfielder Micker Adolfo and left-hander Jordan Guerrero as the team’s Minor League player and pitcher of the month.

The team announced Monday that Adolfo and Guerrero have been voted by a panel of Chicago-area media members to receive the monthly awards for June.

Adolfo, who plays for Class A Kannapolis, batted .267 with eight home runs and 20 runs scored over a 26 game span in June. This is his second consecutive White Sox Minor League Player of the Month award.

Adolfo has remained consistent at the plate this season. He’s tied for the South Atlantic League lead in doubles and ranks No. 2 in extra-base hits (35). Adolfo is batting .279 with 42 RBI and 41 runs scored over 68 games this season.
