LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Dodgers announced that outfielder Bubba Crosby and left-handed reliever Steve Colyer, who both helped Triple-A Las Vegas compile a 20-7 record, have been selected as the organization's April Minor League Player and Pitcher of the Month, respectively, according to Director, Player Development Bill Bavasi.

Crosby batted a Pacific Coast League-best .407 during April, collecting 33 hits, including eight doubles, four triples and five home runs in 26 games.

In addition, he had 18 RBI, scored 22 runs and turned in four three-hit contests. Crosby, the Dodgers' No. 1 pick in the June 1998 First-Year Player Draft out of Rice University, made starts at all three outfield positions in April as well as serving as a designated hitter. Of his first 11 hits this season, eight went for extra bases.
