For the second week in a row, a Pirates player has been named National League Player of the Week. Last week, it was Jung-Ho Kang, and this week it’s Sean Rodriguez, who shares the honor with Brandon Drury of the Arizona Diamondbacks. 

Rodriguez batted .414 and hit five home runs, including a go-ahead three-run homer against the Philadelphia Phillies this past Tuesday. He’s also currently riding an eight game hitting streak. 

The Pirates brought back Rodriguez last offseason on a one-year deal for $2.5 million. The 31-year-old utility man has been very productive in 2016, posting an .871 OPS along with an OPS+ of 129 and a career high 17 long balls in 298 plate appearances.
