Most Valuable Position Player: Runner Up
Only a small sample size this week for Knapp but he made the most of it. Knapp went 3 for 10 on the week scoring three runs.
Two of Knapp’s three hits were thanks to the long ball and his four RBIs were second to only Tommy Joseph, who had five. Knapp has better or similar production numbers to that of Cameron Rupp with just around half the playing time.
It may be time for a changing of the guard behind the plate in Philadelphia.
Most Valuable Pitcher: Runner Up
Neris absolutely showed up this week. The 27-year-old righty threw three hitless innings while only walking one and striking out six.
The outing dropped Neris’ ERA down to 0.84 for the month of May.
