Syracuse Chiefs – 6-6 (4th in Intl. League North)
Offensive Player of the Week
First baseman Chris Marrero has come on strong as of late with a home run, three RBI, and three walks over the last week. He ranks second on the Chiefs through two weeks in homers (2), RBI (9), and walks (5). After a disappointing 2012, Marrero looks back to his usual self as before last season he was good for 15+ homers and a solid average.
Pitcher of the Week
Returned from the Rockies via the Rule 5 Draft, lefty Danny Rosenbaum may just be more comfortable as a member of the Nats’ organization. He has picked up right where he left off as a Nats prospect with two strong starts for the Chiefs. Through his first two games, Rosenbaum has allowed just one earned run in 11 innings pitched. He was an excellent minor league pitcher at the Nats’ lower level teams and could some day make an impact on the major league club.
