Week 14 Yankees Player of the Week

The Yankees started off the week hot by dropping the final game of the series vs. the Angels but sweept Toronto. However, they ran into a hot Oakland team and have lost 3 straight to go 3-4 on the week. Oakland’s pitching has shut down the hot Yankees bats by throwing tons of strikes and by not walking anybody. The Yankees were due for a loosing streak so it is nothing really concerning. Mark Teixeira, Robinson Cano, Phil Hughes, and Alex Rodriguez are your Week 14 Yankees Player of the Week nominees.

The Case For Teixeira: Teixeira continued hit hot July by hitting .333 this week, with 2 HR’s, and 5 RBI.

The Case For Cano: Cano kept up his career high 23 game hit streak going until last night’s game in Oakland. Cano hit .360 on the week, with 1 HR, and 2 RBI. Cano hit a game tying HR on Friday at Oakland before the Yankees lost in the bottom of the 9th.

The Case For Hughes: Hughes had 2 great starts this week. He beat Toronto on Monday and pitched 7 innings, allowed 2 runs, 4 hits, and struck out 4. He pitched great yesterday, but lost due to a lack of support from the offense. Hughes pitched 7.2 innings, allowed 2 runs, 4 hits, and struck out 6 in the loss.

The Case For Rodriguez: A-Rod had a nice week hitting .321, with 1 HR, and 3 RBI. A-Rod had multiple hits in 4 games this week.

The Yankees Week 14 Player of the Week is Robinson Cano. As you may expect Cano now leads the Yankees in Player of the Week wins. As always vote for your pick in the poll and discuss in the comments.
