‘5 HR, 1.689 OPS’ Duvall earns second AL Player of the Week honor of the season

Adam Duvall, 36, of the Boston Red Sox, who was named American League Player of the Week in the opening week of the season, has bounced back to earn the honor nearly five months later.

The Major League Baseball office announced on Monday that Duvall was named American League Pitcher of the Week. It’s his second career honor.

Duvall was on fire over the past week, batting .283 with five home runs, 안전놀이터 12 RBIs, seven doubles, 14 runs scored, a .516 slugging percentage and a 1.689 OPS in seven games.

He had multi-hit games in six of his seven contests and hit a home run in five of them. That’s a higher weekly OPS than even Mookie Betts, who was named National League Player of the Week for his terrifying run.

Duvall was previously named American League Player of the Week after a 1.957 OPS in the opening week of the season. He then went down in early April with a lengthy injury and returned in early June.

As a result, he has played fewer games. However, Duvall has been outstanding through 28 games this season, hitting .271 with 16 home runs, 47 RBIs, a .332 slugging percentage and a .904 OPS in 68 games.

Through 28 games, Boston is 69-62 with a .527 winning percentage, good for fourth place in the American League East. The gap to the second wild card is 4.5 games.

With a month left in the regular season, they are within striking distance. It will be interesting to see how Duvall’s performance impacts Boston’s postseason hopes.
