Thornhill, Ontario – After three excellent starts this season, New Jersey Jackals RHP Eduard Reyes was named the Can-Am League’s Pitcher of the Month for the month of May, as selected by PointStreak, the league’s official statistician.

His outings on the month:
- May 19: earned the win in a 5-1 victory over Ottawa, allowing one run on five hits in six innings of work.
- May 24: improved his record to 2-0 as the Jackals defeated Trois-Rivières 4-1, throwing five shutout innings while striking out eight.
- May 29: gave up a run on four hits in six innings, again fanning eight, earning a no-decision in a 4-2 loss to Québec.
Reyes is pitching in his first professional season since 2013. He had previously pitched in the Milwaukee Brewers’ organization for four years.
