Adrian Beltre named American League Player of the Week by Major League Baseball


Major League Baseball announced today that the Rangers' Adrian Beltre has been named the American League Player of the Week for July 1-7. It is the fourth career weekly award for Beltre, his second in the American League and as a Ranger.

Beltre batted .478 (11-23) with 4 homers, 2 doubles and 5 RBI in 6 games last week. He led the American League in home runs, slugging (1.087), OPS (1.607), total bases (25), and extra-base hits (6) while producing the fourth highest batting average. Beltre hit safely in all six games with two or more hits four times. He had the 24th multi-homer game of his career with a pair of long balls on July 4 against Seattle.

Beltre was previously selected as American League Player of the Week for August 20-26, 2012, the last Ranger to be so honored. His Player of the Week Awards in the National League were August 21-27, 2000, and June 21-27, 2004 (shared with Houston's Roy Oswalt).
