Peavy named AL Pitcher of the Month

Jake Peavy has been named the American League Pitcher of the Month for April.

This is the fifth monthly award the White Sox right-hander has received throughout his career, and the first time a south sider has earned the honors since Gavin Floyd did back in 2010.

Peavy went 3-1 with a 1.67 ERA, 33 strikeouts, including two complete games and one shutout in five starts throughout the month of April.

Here's a detailed look by CSNChicago.com's JJ Stankevitz into just how successful a month Peavy's had.

The White Sox have earned three AL honors since the start of the 2012 season. Philip Humber was named Player of the Week during April 16-22 after pitching a perfect game, and Paul Konerko received the same award for the week of April 23-29 after knocking his 400th career home run out of the park.
