Oscar Taveras Named Midwest League Player Of The Week

Midwest League
Oscar Taveras, Quad Cities
.600/.643/.960, 6 G, 15-for-25, 4 2B, 3B, HR, 5 RBI, 10 R, 2 BB, 2 K
Taveras has struggled with a hamstring injury suffered the first weekend of the season, but missing three weeks in April and another month from mid-May to mid-June hasn't cooled his bat at all. He has hits in 33 of his 39 games this season, is currently riding a 12-game hitting streak, and would lead all Midwest League hitters by 73 points (he's batting .393) had he the plate appearances to qualify. This week he collected multiple hits in five straight games and helped the River Bandits take over first place after winning five of six.
