Major League Baseball has bestowed its National League Player of the Week award to Phillies’ designated hitter Bryce Harper.  This is Harper’s seventh career NL Player of the Week award but his first since joining the Phillies.  

Just how good was Harper last week?  The stats are mind boggling.  

Harper hit .609 (14-for-23) with 3 HRs, 6 2Bs, 3 SB, 8 RBIs. and a 1.094 OPS.  Oh yeah, he’s doing this with a partially torn UCL.  On the season, Harper is hitting .303, with 9 HRs, 14 2Bs, 1 3Bs, 27 RBIs, and a .994 OPS.  The Phillies went 5-1 during this stretch including two series wins on their West Coast swing.
