Major League Baseball Player Of The Week May 30th 2021

I have written a lot of baseball related content and stories over the past few years for a couple of different websites.

While I am not writing for those sites anymore, I still do enjoy writing baseball and will continue to do so here.

First up is a regular feature of mine I used to write on the American and National League Players Of The Week in Major League Baseball.

Woodruff Wins National League Nod

Brewers starting pitcher Brandon Woodruff grabbed the honours for the National League, not surprising given his Cy Young like numbers to start the season.

Woodruff’s week includes some stunning numbers such as 14 scoreless innings while striking out 18 of the 48 batters he faced. He now has an ERA of 1.27. Woodruff’s opponents’ slash for the week was .109/.146/.109.

Woodruff has been tough all season with a FIP of 2.19 in 76 innings as well as a WHIP of 0.737.

Abreu Nabs Third Player Of The Week For The Chicago White Sox

Like Yermín Mercedes and Carlos Rodón before him this season, José Abreu has been awarded Player Of The Week Honours.

Abreu went 9-for-24 with two doubles, two home runs, and 10 RBIs as his team went 6-1 in its homestand.

Abreu won the AL Rookie of the Year Award in 2014, the Silver Slugger Award in 2014, 2018, and 2020, and the American League’s Most Valuable Player Award in 2020.

This is his sixth win for Player Of The Week.
