Reynolds Named Player of the Week

June 15, 2009 by  

Mark Reynolds

The Arizona Diamondbacks’ very own Mark Reynolds shared the weekly honor with Colorado Rockies closer Hudson Street. This was the first time that either player was awarded and we are very excited that Mark was honored. Reynolds had a tremendous week with his powerful bat, boasting a perfect slugging percentage and a batting average of .417. Reynolds also would tie a career high 5 RBI in Friday night’s game against the Houston Astros.

For the week, Reynolds would gather up five doubles, three home runs, nine RBI with one stolen base. His on base percentage would be .462 for the week. Mark looks to be on track for his first 30/30 season at the rate that he is currently playing. For those of us that remember, Mark led the league in strikeouts the year prior. Although it is not a stat that any player would like to be the leader in, Mark has been able to make improvements in the off-season but is still within reach of Texas’ Chris Davis. Davis has not been able to post the kinds of numbers that Reynolds has but we are sure that this is on the front of his mind.

Also this week, the product of Virginia baseball was hit on the wrist by a pitch that would be a moment that would scare most fans. The following day Mark would hit one of his week’s home runs as he proved to the team, the fans and the media that his wrist was in working order. We are proud of Mark and congratulate him on an awesome week and wish him and the D-backs the very best in the weeks to come.
