The monthly minor league awards are voted on by players and coaches at each level.

LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers on Monday announced the winners of their April Dodgers Pride awards, given monthly to a hitter and pitcher at each minor league level to players "who play the game with a hustling, smart, aggressive style." The club's top two hitting prospects, Joc Pederson and Corey Seager, each won honors at their respective levels.

The awards, which were established in 2008 by general manager Ned Colletti, are voted on by players and coaches at each minor league level.

Triple-A Albuquerque

Pederson took the honors after hitting .398/.504/.663 with eight doubles, six home runs, and nine steals during the month. Henry Sosa, a 28-year-old right-hander signed to a minor league deal in December, was 1-0 with a 2.61 ERA in five April starts, with 21 strikeouts and seven walks in 31 innings.

Double-A Chattanooga

Scott Schebler hit .255/.307/.553 in his first month in Double-A, with five home runs, five doubles and four triples. He was the Dodgers Branch Rickey Player of the Year in 2013.

Tyson Brummett, 29, allowed one run in 23 innings in his four April starts, with 19 strikeouts and six walks. The Dodgers signed the right-hander as a minor league free agent in February.

Class-A Rancho Cucamonga

Seager hit .294/.337/.482 with six doubles, two doubles and two triples in 20 games in April. Matt Shelton, the Dodgers' 24th-round pick in the 2011 draft, was 1-1 with a 1.76 ERA in eight appearances in April, with 14 strikeouts and just one walk in 15⅓ innings.

Class-A Great Lakes

Loons right fielder Joey Curletta, drafted in the sixth round in 2012, hit .368/.391/.453 with nine doubles in 25 games in April, including a  13-game hitting streak from April 13-25. Right-handed pitcher Michael Johnson, picked in the 14th round of last year's draft, was 1-1 with a 1.35 ERA in eight relief appearances during the month, with 19 strikeouts and five walks in 13⅓ innings.
