More good news for the Toronto Blue Jays with third baseman Josh Donaldson and starting pitcher David Price named AL players of the week.
Donaldson batted .385 (10-for-26) with nine runs scored, two doubles, five home runs with eight runs batted in over from Aug. 3 to Aug. 9, while Price went 2-0 with a 0.60 earned-run average and 18 strikeouts in 15.0 innings pitched in his first two starts with the Jays.
The news comes on the back of an eight-game wining streak with the Toronto side now 1.5 games back of the AL East-leading New York Yankees.
This is Donaldson’s third weekly honour while it marks the first of Price’s career.
The Jays bring in Oakland on Tuesday for the first of three at the Rogers Centre.
