Tsuyoshi Wada was named Cubs minor league pitcher of the month. From MiLB.com's Matt Grilli:
The Chicago Cubs named LHP Tsuyoshi Wada their Minor League Pitcher of the Month for April on Wednesday. He's the first Iowa pitcher to win the award since LHP Chris Rusin last June.
Wada, 33, went 3-1 in five starts, leading the Pacific Coast League with a 0.57 ERA (2ER/31.1IP), a 0.65 WHIP and a .150 opponents' batting average. The southpaw also ranked second in strikeouts per nine innings (10.63) and fewest walks per nine innings (1.15).
Wada earned the league's Pitcher of the Week honors for the period April 3-13 to open the season. He surrendered just one earned run in 13.1 innings against Nashville and Memphis.
