Troy Tulowitzki Named NL Player Of The Week

With the Rockies currently riding a 10-game winning streak, it's no wonder that a Rockie would be named NL Player of the Week. Troy Renck reports that Troy Tulowitzki was just named the NL Player of the Week:

In seven games last week, Tulowitzki batted .370 (10-27) and led the majors with six home runs, a 1.148 slugging percentage and 31 total bases.

Tulowitzki has belted eight home runs during the Rockies’ 10-game winning streak. [...]

So much for Tulowitzki's hand/wrist injury sapping his power for the rest of the season. It's time for Troy to lead the Rockies from Rocktember into Rocktober and beyond.

The official MLB press release on the honor mentions that fellow Rockies Eric Young Jr. and Huston Street were considered.
