June 30,2014(ISN) – SEATTLE, Wash. – Seattle Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager has been named the American League Player of the Week for June 23-29. It is the second Player of the Week honor of the season for Seager who shared the award for April 21-27 with Chicago’s Jose Abreu.

Seager batted .583 (14×24) with 5 runs, 3 doubles, 2 home runs, 8 RBI and a 1.542 OPS in 6 games vs. the Red Sox and Indians (4-2 team record). This is the third weekly honor for the Mariners this season (Seager and Felix Hernandez, June 2-8). It is the first time since 2006 (Ibañez, Ichiro, Pineiro) the Mariners have had three Player of the Week awards in a season.

In six games last week, Seager paced the Majors with 14 hits and a .958 slugging percentage while leading the A.L. with eight RBI. The left-handed-hitting slugger had the second-highest batting average among qualifying A.L. hitters. He also ranked second in on-base percentage (.583) and total bases (23) and collected hits in every game last week including five multi-hit games during the week.
