Most Valuable Position Player: Runner Up

Andrew Knapp

Knapp had a nice week this week albeit in limited playing time. The rookie backstop went 4 for 9 while capping off his week with his first career home run.

The 25-year-old catcher is now batting .304 on the season with four extra base hits in just 23 at bats.

Most Valuable Pitcher: Runner Up

Joaquin Benoit

Benoit put up some solid numbers this week. The 39-year-old right appeared in three games pitching three innings while striking out four. Benoit has lowered his season ERA to 2.31 and is molding himself into an attractive trade chip.
