Two Lake County Captains were named the Midwest League players of the week for the period of June 8-14.
First baseman Bobby Bradley was named the MWL offensive player of the week after batting .409 (9-for-22) with four home runs and 10 RBI in his last six games. The 19-year-old Cleveland Indians prospect is on pace for 32 home runs this season despite missing almost an entire month because of an oblique strain.
Bradley got off to a slow start this year, batting .174 through his first nine games before suffering the injury that sidelined him. Now he is batting .279 with 11 HR and 35 RBI in 38 games this season.
LHP Sean Brady was named the MWL pitcher of the week after turning in a pair of dominant pitching performances during the specified period. On June 8 he held the Beloit Snappers to one run on three hits and a walk while striking out five batters in six innings. On June 14 he held the Kane County Cougars scoreless, limiting them to two hits and three walks while striking out six batters in six innings. He earned a win in both games.
Brady is 5-3 with a 2.88 ERA, 53 strikeouts and 13 walks in 65.2 innings pitched for the Captains this season.
