Cabrera named AL Player of the Month

He batted .330 (35-for-106) with eight home runs and 31 RBIs in July to go with a .848 .613 (sorry, press release was wrong) slugging percentage and .357 OBP. According to the release, Cabrera gets a 52-inch HDTV from Sharp (award sponsor) and a trophy for the honor, which is considerably more than the watch for player of the week award-winners.
