INDIANAPOLIS - The Indianapolis Indians, in conjunction with the International League, today announced that first baseman Joey Terdoslavich was named the IL Player of the Week (July 10-16). Terdoslavich is the third Tribe member to earn IL weekly honors this season, joining left-hander Steven Brault and first baseman Jason Rogers.

Terdoslavich, 28, made the most of his four games against Louisville after the All-Star break, hitting .500 (8-for-16) with two home runs, two doubles, eight RBI and five runs scored. He hit a two-run homer in Indy's 10-0 win Thursday and followed that with a three-run blast in Friday's 6-0 triumph.

The Florida native ranked among IL leaders in slugging percentage (1st - 1.000), OPS (1st - 1.529), hits (T-1st), home runs (T-1st), RBI (T-1st), total bases (T-1st - 16), extra-base hits (2nd - 4) and runs scored (T-2nd) for the week.

The IL weekly award is the third of Terdoslavich's career. He took home honors twice in 2014 while playing with Gwinnett.
