Phillies No. 16 Prospect Cozens Named International League Batter of the Week

By Matt Rappa, Sports Talk Philly editor

Philadelphia Phillies 16th-ranked prospect OF Dylan Cozens has been named the International League Batter of the Week, his second-career honor, according to MiLB.com's Chris Dunham Jr.

Dunham Jr. writes:

The lefty reached base safely multiple times in each contest during the Pigs' six-game homestand and finished the week 10-for-21 (.476) while leading the league with four home runs, four doubles, 13 RBI, six runs, 26 total bases and a 1.238 slugging percentage. He also walked five times.

He opened the homestand with a three-run game-tying home run Tuesday against Gwinnett, repeated the feat in Thursday's contest and added a pair of two-run shots in Saturday's victory over Columbus in the second leg of a doubleheader.

Since rejoining the IronPigs on July 12 — after collecting just two hits in 21 plate appearances with the Phillies from June 1-July 9 — Cozens is slashing .317/.419/.825 with eight doubles, eight home runs, 22 RBI, 11 walks and 23 strikeouts spanning 17 games and 74 plate appearances.

Cozens, 24, is the third IronPig ever to collect multiple Batter of the Week honors, joining Andy Tracy and Joey Meneses. The Scottsdale, Arizona, native is the third IronPig to receive Player of the Week honors this season, as Meneses and southpaw Cole Irvin both earned Player of the Week honors twice.

Cozens is tied with two other players — teammate Mitch Walding being one of them — for the International League lead in home runs this season, 18.
