Rockies infielder Josh Fuentes capped off the best week of his career with a big honor. On Monday, Fuentes was named the National League player of the week.
Fuentes, 28, won the award for the first time in his career and is the first Rockies player since Daniel Murphy in July 2019 to receive the honor.
Over five games, Fuentes batted .500 (11-for-22), scored six runs, hit two home runs and three doubles, drove in 13 runs and posted a .909 slugging percentage.
Fuentes entered Monday night’s game at San Diego having driven in multiple runs in each of his past five games, tying him with Charlie Blackmon (2017) and Dante Bichette (1995) for the longest such streak in franchise history.
Fuentes’ 13 RBIs in five games are the most by a Colorado player since Ian Desmond in June 2019.
New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge was named the AL player of the week after slashing .571/.640/1.333 with eight runs scored, 12 hits, a double, five home runs and six RBIs across six games. Judge won the honor for the fourth time in his career.
