June 2012 NL Rookie of the Month - Andrelton Simmons

Congratulations are in order for Andrelton Simmons of the Atlanta Braves.  He was just named NL Rookie of the month for June 2012.

He hit .333 (30 for 90) with 6 doubles, three home runs and had 14 RBIs.  He led all NL rookies in just about every offensive category.  He placed first in batting average, on base percentage (.365) and hits.  This was especially cool since all I heard about the guy before the month of June was he defense.

I've really enjoyed watching Andrelton and Dan Uggla turn some nice double plays in the first half of the season and I'm hoping they can keep the chemistry going strong as the Braves make a push for the post season in the coming 2nd half of the season.
