Two Pittsburgh Pirates took home Player of the Week awards in the minors on Monday. Altoona’s Logan Hill was named as the Eastern League winner, while Bradenton’s Travis Swaggerty was named as the Florida State League winner.
Hill hit .458/.480/.958 in six games, collecting three doubles, three homers, nine RBIs and four runs scored. Between a brief stint in Indianapolis and his time in Altoona this year, Hill is batting .252/.330/.431 in 112 games, with 30 doubles, three triples and 12 homers.
Swaggerty batted .483/.515/.828 in 29 at-bats across eight games. He had four doubles, two homers, seven RBIs, six runs and two stolen bases. In 112 games for the Marauders this season, Swaggerty is hitting .269/.347/.389, with 18 doubles, three triples, nine homers and 21 stolen bases.
You can read more about both players in our top performers article from earlier today. Hill was named as our Player of the Week for the entire Pirates system. I’ll note that our week goes from Sunday-Saturday to allow us the time to write up a 3,500+ word article for Monday morning, while the league awards are for Monday-Sunday, so the stats aren’t the same.
