| No Comments | No TrackBacks

White Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis, who batted .478 with three homers and 10 RBI in his last six games, was named American League Player of the Week on Monday.

Youkilis, 33, was 11-for-23 (.478) with seven runs scored, a .571 on-base percentage and .913 slugging percentage as the White Sox went 5-1 on a homestand against the Texas Rangers and Toronto Blue Jays.

Youkilis, 33, hit safely and had an RBI in each game last week, including game-winners in each of the Rangers games and on Saturday against the Blue Jays.

Youkilis is batting .347 (17-49) with three homers and 14 RBI in 13 games with the Sox, who acquired him from the Boston Red Sox with cash on June 24 for infielder Brent Lillibridge and right-hander Zach Stewart.
