After two months of the 2013 season, Evan Gattis has taken his second National League Rookie of the Month recognition for the month of May, according to the official Atlanta Braves Twitter, @Braves.

Gattis led Major League rookies with 16 RBIs in May and he was tied for the rookie lead with six homers.

While Gattis' 12 homers lead rookies, he also ranks fifth in the NL in the category.

Gattis is the first player to win Rookie of the Month for two consecutive months since Jason Heyward accomplished the feat in April and May 2010.
