The American League Player of the Week for the period ending May 1st is Tampa Bay Rays second baseman Ben Zobrist.

The winner of the American League weekly honor, is awarded a watch courtesy of Game Time, the leader in licensed sports watches, available at MLB.com.

In six games last week, Zobrist batted .440 (11-for-25) with two home runs and a .444 on-base percentage. The switch-hitter led the Majors with five doubles and 13 RBI’s, tied for the top spot with eight runs scored and 24 total bases, finished second with a .960 slugging percentage and tied for second with 11 hits.

Zobrist had a career day in a doubleheader against the Minnesota Twins. In the first game on Thursday, the Eureka, Illinois native had a career-high four hits and eight RBI’s, including two doubles, a home run and two runs scored in a 15-3 blasting of the Twins. His eight RBI’s broke the Rays’ previous single-game mark of seven, set by Carlos Pena in 2007, and were the most in a game since Toronto’s Adam Lind on August 31, 2009. The 29-year-old went into the nightcap and continued to have a hot bat, going 3-for-4 with a double, a home run, two RBI’s and three runs scored en route to a 6-1 Rays win and series sweep of the Twins.

In five straight games, Zobrist had 18 RBI’s and that marked the most for an American League player since Reggie Jackson compiled 18 RBI’s from June 14-18, 1969. Zobrist’s 10 RBI’s in the doubleheader were the most for a twin bill since St. Louis’ Mark Whiten earned 13 RBI’s on September 7, 1993 at Cincinnati.

The sixth round pick in the 2004 First-Year Player Draft by the Houston Astros, finished the series against Minnesota 8-for-14 (.571) with two home runs, three doubles, a triple, six runs scored and 13 RBI’s, the most RBI’s in a three-game series in the Majors since 2004.

The Dallas Baptist University alumnus carried an eight-game hitting streak into this week along with an American League-leading 25 RBI’s and he ranks second in the Majors with 18 extra-base hits.

This is Zobrist’s second career weekly honor; the other on 9/29/2008 and the third for the Rays this season joining Johnny Damon and James Shields.
