On Monday afternoon, the Florida State League named outfielder Calvin Mitchell as their Player of the Week. As mentioned in our top performers article this morning, he was having a big week for the Bradenton Marauders before he drove in seven runs on Sunday. In total last week, he hit three homers and drove in 13 runs, while putting up a .500/.571/1.167 slash line.
Through 87 games this season, Mitchell is putting up a .264/.311/.443 slash line, with 19 doubles, two triples and 13 homers. He was named to the FSL All-Star game back in early June and won MVP honors that day. Mitchell is tied for fourth in the league in homers, tied for eighth in doubles and ranks fifth in slugging. That’s all coming from someone who was the sixth youngest player in the FSL on Opening Day.
