Aoki, Braun, Greinke, Lucroy or Veras: Who Will Be Brewer Of The Week?

New, 6 comments

I'm sure you're familiar with the drill by now: The Brewers were bad this week but some individuals were good. Here are the silver linings on this week's stat sheet:

Norichika Aoki had six hits in six appearances this week, including two doubles and a triple. He hit .333/.429/.556 and was worth +.246 WPA.

Ryan Braun had eleven hits over six games, including a pair of three-hit games. He hit two home runs and drove in ten this week with a .423/.444/.731 batting line and was worth +.727 WPA.

Zack Greinke held the Twins to a run on five hits over 6.2 innings Sunday, walking two and striking out six. He was worth +.015 WPA this week.

Jonathan Lucroy (reigning and defending) had hits in each of his five starts this week (now 18 of his last 20 overall). Seven of his nine hits went for extra bases, including three home runs. He hit .429/.478/1.095 and was worth +.275 WPA.

Jose Veras appeared in four of the Brewers' six games and allowed a run on three hits over 5.2 innings, striking out six without allowing a walk. He's currently retired 15 consecutive batters faced, and was worth +.466 WPA this week.

The last three off the ballot: Aramis Ramirez, Yovani Gallardo and Corey Hart.
