Major League Baseball announced Tuesday that Atlanta Braves outfielder Michael Harris II was named National League Player of the Week. Shohei Ohtani took home the honor for the American League.
“That’s how quick this thing can turn around,” manager Brian Snitker said of Harris’ achievement. “Just last week you guys were asking about his struggles and here he is.”
Over his last 7 games, Harris has found himself with a .481 average after manufacturing 13 hits. He looks to continue his hot streak in Philadelphia.
