Michael Young win’s AL Player of the week.
In six games last week, Michael hit .500 (15-30) and compiled two doubles, a triple, one home run, eight RBI and nine runs scored. Young also posted a .733 slugging percentage and a .516 on-base percentage. On August 22nd, the 32-year-old hit his 43rd career triple, the second-most in club history and one shy of tying the club record, and fell just a double short of the cycle in a 5-4, extra-inning loss to the Tampa Bay Rays. The fifth round selection in the 1997 First-Year Player Draft brings an 11-game hitting streak into his club’s series at Yankee Stadium, starting tomorrow. It is his 19th career hitting streak of 10-or-more games, tying him with teammate Ivan Rodriguez for the most in Texas history.
Should Michael Young be considered for the AL MVP? Me, yes and I think he is starting to get in the “Hall of Fame career” type numbers as well. THE most underrated player in baseball…period.
Irving native Blake Beavan, the Rangers 2007 first round draft pick put up some monster numbers on Friday at Frisco.
