The Orioles named their Minor League Player and Pitcher of the Month for August on Wednesday, a pairing that includes two current members of the Double-A Bowie club.
Brandon Waring, who was recently promoted to Bowie, was recognized for his work at Class A Frederick. Waring batted .286 with a .382 on-base percentage and a .619 slugging mark in August, knocking nine home runs and driving home 25 runs to earn his promotion.
Reliever Luis Lebron was lauded for a perfect month at Bowie that saw him log a 0.00 ERA over 14 innings. Lebron struck out 20 batters and only walked three in August.
