Shane Victorino named American League Player of the Week

Written by 


According to a report from ESPNBoston.com, Boston Red Sox right fielder Shane Victorino was named the American League Player of the Week on Monday.

 The Wailuku, Hawaii native certainly had a week to remember last week as he batted .400 (12-for-30) with two home runs, three doubles, seven runs scored, and six RBIs. Against the Seattle Mariners last Tuesday, Victorino notched three hits, and followed that impressive performance up with a big game that Thursday (also against Seattle) as he went 2-for-5 with a solo dinger, three RBIs and two runs scored as part of a dramatic 8-7 come-from-behind victory.

His efforts were a huge reason why the Local Nine notched a 5-2 record for the week and in turn, remained in the thick of a tight American League East battle for first place. Currently, Boston has a half-game lead over the Tampa Bay Rays for the top spot in the division.

It may have taken him a little longer to get going due to injuries, (specifically a bothersome hamstring), but it appears that the speedy outfielder nicknamed “The Flyin’ Hawaiian” has begun to find his groove.
