Minor League Baseball announced Monday that Dayton Dragons outfielder Jose Siri is the recipient of its Midwest League Player of the Month Award for July.

Here is what MiLB wrote about Siri in its press release announcing each league’s player of the month:

Dayton Dragons (Reds) outfielder Jose Siri led the Midwest League in hits (43), home runs (10), slugging (.680), extra-base hits (19) and total bases (85). Siri hit safely in all 28 games in July as part of his Midwest League record 39-game hitting streak, and posted 11 multi-hit games. His 85 total bases led the league by 22. Siri, 22, was signed by Cincinnati as a non-drafted free agent out of Sabana Grande de Boya, Dominican Republic, in 2013.

Siri’s hitting streak recently came to an end against the Great Lakes Loons. Before Friday, the Reds prospect had hit safely in every Dragons game in the second half of the season. He still has an active 45-game on-base streak.

Siri currently leads the Midwest League in total bases (211) and stolen bases (30); ranks second in hits (118); is tied for second in home runs (19); ranks third in runs (69) and slugging percentage (.525); is tied for fifth in triples (8); ranks ninth in batting average (.294); and is tied for ninth in runs batted in (58).
