NEW YORK (Sports Network) – Texas Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish was named the American League Rookie of the Month for April.

Darvish pitched to a perfect 4-0 record with a 2.18 ERA, including 33 strikeouts and 17 walks, over 33 innings on the mound in five starts to earn the honor.

The Osaka, Japan native participated in just the seventh all-time meeting between Japanese-born starting pitchers in an April 24th duel with the New York Yankees’ Hiroki Kuroda.

Darvish’s best performance of the month came in that matchup as he tossed 8 1/3 scoreless innings while scattering seven hits and striking out 10 batters.

Other players receiving votes included Athletics center fielder Yoenis Cespedes, Tigers pitcher Drew Smyly and Orioles pitcher Wei-Yin Chen.
