I thought this might happen. Braves OF Justin Upton (Chesapeake) was named NL player of the week for the week ending April 13. Upton hit .591 with 4 homers and 8 runs scored, tops in baseball, and his 8 RBIs were third in baseball.
Upton went 1-15 to start the season, but this hot streak has sent his batting average soaring nearly 300 points, to now .386. His batting average has increased in four straight games.
This player of the week award is Upton’s third career honor.
