Yankees’ Juan Soto named AL Player of the Week

Major League Baseball announced its weekly awards on Monday, and New York Yankees superstar Juan Soto was named American League Player of the Week.

Soto went 9-for-17 at the plate with one home run, four runs batted in, and a 1.365 OPS to help lead the Yankees to a four-game road sweep of the Houston Astros.


The outfielder also contributed defensively, making several big plays, including throwing a runner out at the plate in the ninth inning on Opening Day.

The Yankees (4-0) begin a three-game series with the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday at 9:40 p.m., looking to start the season 5-0 for the first time since 1992.
