5/12 Kris Bryant honored

The Southern League today named Kris Bryant the Hitter of the Week for May 5-12. Bryant is the second Double-A Tennessee player to be honored with a weekly award from the league. Starting pitcher Corey Black was honored as Pitcher of the Week last month.

Bryant compiled a .464 average (13-for-28) from May 5-12, and scored 12, hit four homers, a double and drove in 14 runs. On April 7, he recorded his first multi-homer game and also set single-game career-highs in runs (four) and RBI (six).

Overall this year, Bryant is batting .331 with 10 homers and 29 RBI in 35 games. He leads the Southern League in batting average, homers, runs scored (33), slugging percentage (.624), total bases (83) and extra-base hits (19), and ranks second in hits (44), and on-base percentage (.437).

“He leads the Southern League in batting average, homers, runs scored (33), slugging percentage (.624), total bases (83) and extra-base hits (19), and ranks second in hits (44), and on-base percentage (.437).”

Wow!! He also ranks second in RBI. In addition to hitting, he also plays the organ during the 7th inning stretch and assists the grounds crew during rain delays.

After batting practice, he helps park cars and also assists the hot dog vendors

Ha! I read that on an upcoming off-day, Theo asked to go scout some of the college pitchers and give a report for the draft. I just checked, he also leads in OPS. I don’t mean to critique your list, it’s just amazing that he leads or is second in so many offensive categories!

well if he leads it in sulgging and OBP then its kinda assumed that he leads it in OPS too since you just add those two together anyways………

He also sleeps with both eyes open!

Sorry had to do it.
