For the fourth time in five weeks, an Isotope has been honored by the PCL League Office, announcing Monday that Jordan Patterson has been named Player of the Week. The award comes for the period of July 10-16.
Patterson, 25, batted .471 (8-for-17) in an abbreviated four-game week while compiling four home runs, nine RBI, a .526 on-base percentage and slugging 1.176. The first baseman's OPS for the week was a staggering 1.703.
Patterson's accolade is his second of the season, winning the same award from the period of June 19-25 when he batted .423 (11-for-26) in six games.
Isotopes teammate Ryan McMahon also took home the honor for the week of June 12-18 while lefty Ryan Carpenter was awarded Pitcher of the Week for June 26-July 2.
The Mobile, AL native is in his fifth professional season after being drafted by the Rockies in the fourth round of the 2013 First-Year Player Draft. Patterson is just the fourth Isotope to ever win multiple Player of the Week awards in the same season.
The Isotopes return home tonight, July 17 to open a homestand with the Tacoma Rainiers. Albuquerque and Tacoma will play five games in four days, battling in a twin-bill tomorrow evening. Tickets are available at abqisotopes.com or by visiting the Isotopes Park Box Office.
