Curtis Granderson Wins AL Player of the Week

Curtis Granderson hit .500 (8 for 16) in the days following the All Star Break and that was good enough to garner him the American League Player of the Week.  It’s the first weekly award of Granderson’s career.  Hopefully he can keep it up and help the Tigers take care of the Twins beginning tonight.

Also, Tim Kirby at MLB.com has a great story on Mud Hens third baseman Mike Hessman, who’s having a breakout year of sorts.  This is Hessman’s third season with the Mud Hens after spending a lot of time in the Braves organization.  With nearly two monts left to play, Hessman’s already set a career mark in RBIs and he’s just one short of his career high in homeruns.  Not too shabby from the former 15th roun pick.
