Offensive Player of the Week: 3B Taylor Green

Taylor was named the Brewers Organization Player of the Year last season, and he is picking up exactly where he left off.  His stat line thus far is .362/.464/.468 with 3 SB.  Nobody is going to argue with production like that.  Taylor is the reason I believe Mat Gamel is somewhat expendable.  The only knock against the young man is his defense.  He already has three errors this season.  Hopefully, that will improve with coaching.

Honorable Mention: CF Darren Ford, CF Michael Brantley, 3B Russell Branyan

Pitcher of the Week: LHP Derek Miller

This was a difficult decision for this week, as no pitcher threw the ball extremely well this week.  There were many that did pitch well though.  Derek brings an 0-1 record into next week, but he only has a 1.84 ERA in three starts and 14.2 innings pitched.  He had a complete game, in which he gave up zero earned runs.  It ended up being only five innings long because of rain, but it still counts.  If Derek is going to keep his fly-out tendency (0.79 GO/AO), he will need to get the strikeouts a bit higher.  10 Ks in 14.2 innings is certainly nothing to be upset about, especially from a lefty, but I would still like to see it higher.

Honorable Mention: RHP Omar Aguilar, RHP Evan Anundsen, RHP Donovan Hand

Omar Aguilar throws absolute gas. I hope he can continue his good pitching because he could be a stud.

I think you should do this feature all the time!!! I think Darren Ford should have won the player of the week, but I cannot complain. Taylor Green has been good too.
