Axford, Estrada, Kintzler, Ramirez Or Weeks: Who Will Be Brewer Of The Week?

New, 5 comments

Everyone loves a 5-1 week. They'd love a 6-0 week more, but a single-blemish week still left us with some very good BotW nominees:

John Axford recorded the save in three of the Brewers' five wins this week, pitching three hitless innings while walking two and striking out two. He's now converted ten consecutive saves and was worth +.257 WPA this week.

Marco Estrada pitched 6.2 shutout innings against the Braves on Tuesday, allowing a walk and four hits while striking out six. He was worth +.417 WPA this week.

Brandon Kintzler pitched four scoreless innings over three relief appearances this week, including the 12th inning of Friday's extra inning win and two innings in Sunday's eventual extra inning loss. He was worth +.278 WPA this week.

Aramis Ramirez had six hits over five appearances this week, including a pair of home runs. He hit .316/.435/.684 this week and was worth +.129 WPA.

Rickie Weeks had three multi-hit games this week, and four of his seven hits went for extra bases (a triple and three home runs). He hit .259/.310/.667 this week and was worth +.023 WPA.

Honorable mentions: Wily Peralta, Yovani Gallardo and Jose Veras
