On the 13th (Korean time), MLB.com, the official homepage of the Major League Baseball, announced the player of the week.
In the National League, Carroll shone the most.
Last week, Carroll had a batting average of 0.500 (11 hits in 22 at-bats), 3 homers, 8 RBIs, 9 runs, a slugging percentage of 1.091, and an on-base percentage of 0.542.
In his last 8 against the Washington Nationals, he had 4 hits, setting his own record for most hits in a game. The next day, against the Detroit Tigers, he showed off a bat that did not cool down by hitting three hits, including two home runs.
Carroll entered the big leagues last year and played only 32 games. Arizona gave Carroll an eight-year, $110 million (approximately 141.9 billion won) contract extension ahead of this season.
Arizona, known as a club known for being stingy in investment, was highly evaluated for Carroll’s growth potential to the extent that it opened its wallet wide.
As expected by the team, Carroll has a batting average of 0.308, 13 homers, 33 RBIs, 47 points and 19 stolen bases in 62 games this season, quickly establishing himself as the team’s main player.
In the American League, Henderson was named Player of the Week.
Henderson made a big success last week with a batting average of 0.526 (10 hits in 19 at-bats), 3 homers, 6 RBIs, 5 runs, a slugging percentage of 1.053, and an on-base percentage of 0.550.
On the 10th and 12th, with the Kansas City Royals, he hit multi-hits throughout the three consecutive matches, and scored hits in every game in the five games last week.
