It was just announced that 2006 Lowell Spinner Aaron Bates was named a Minor League player of the month by TOPPS. The official release reads:

Aaron Bates (23) of Los Gatos, CA, set a California League record when he homered four times in a game on May 19. The Lancaster JetHawks first baseman hit .340 in May with seven doubles and 24 RBI.
