On Monday afternoon, the Florida State League named Bradenton Marauders first baseman Mason Martin as their Player of the Week. Earlier in the day, he was named as our Player of the Week for the third time. He was already the only player to repeat as our Player of the Week this year.
Bradenton had eight games this week, thanks to no days off and a doubleheader. Martin played in all of them and hit .346/.433/.923 in 26 at-bats, with three doubles, four homers, 11 RBIs, nine runs and four walks. In 19 games with the Marauders, he is hitting .262/.400/.607, with six doubles, five homers and 14 walks. He posted a .935 OPS in 82 games with Greensboro this year before being promoted to High-A on July 9th. Martin has hit 28 home runs this season already and picked up 99 RBIs, with exactly five weeks left in the season.
