Rafael Devers (27, Boston Red Sox), who is showing off his batting skills in the second half of the season, was named the player who had the hottest week in the American League.
The Major League Baseball Secretariat announced on the 19th (Korean time) that Devers was selected as the American League Player of the Week. This is his second career award.
Devers recorded a batting average of 0.400, 4 home runs, 5 RBIs, 5 runs, 8 hits, and an on-base percentage of 0.586 and an OPS of 1.586 in 7 games (6 starts) over the past week.안전놀이터
Although Boston lost 6 of these 7 games, Devers’ performance shined. In particular, he recorded 3 hits in the second game of the doubleheader against the New York Yankees on the 15th.
As a result, Devers’ performance also improved significantly. In 142 games of the season until the 18th, Devers recorded a batting average of 0.276, 33 home runs, 98 RBI, and an on-base percentage of 0.355 and an OPS of 0.876.
He is yet to reach his career-high 2021 season. His performance at the time was a batting average of 0.279, 38 home runs, 113 RBI, and an OPS of 0.890.
Devers is a player whom Boston gave a huge 11-year contract worth $331 million. He is the type of hitter who can consistently hit a lot of home runs and have a high OPS as an infielder.
Meanwhile, despite Devers’ performance, Boston fell to the bottom of the division after showing a poor performance with 2 wins and 8 losses in the last 10 games. Donga.com
