Starlin Castro Chicago Cubs

Castro led the Major Leagues with a .615 (8-for-13) batting average and a .643 on-base percentage through baseball’s opening week. His eight hits were also tops in the Majors while his 1.000 slugging percentage and 13 total bases led the National League. On April 1st, the 21-year-old began his sophomore season with a 3-for-5 effort in his first career Opening Day start. On April 2nd, Castro ignited a five-run rally with a RBI double in the bottom of the eighth, leading the Cubs over the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-3 for their first win of the season. The Dominican Republic native went 3-for-4 with two triples in Sunday’s series finale, marking his third multi-hit game in as many games.

On April 3rd, Garcia threw a four-hit, complete-game shutout and earned the win as the Cardinals beat the visiting San Diego Padres, 2-0 at Busch Stadium. The 24-year-old native of Mexico worked effectively, facing just four batters over the minimum and throwing 102 pitches while striking out nine and walking two.

This is the first career N.L. Player of the Week Award for both Castro and Garcia.
