Nashville Sounds Outfielder led the PCL in Hits, RBI, Doubles and Total Bases
Nashville, TN – Nashville Sounds outfielder Jaycob Brugman has been named Pacific Coast League Player of the Week for his performance from June 6th-12th, the league announced today.
The 24-year-old hit .467 (14-for-30) with 12 RBI, 9 runs scored, 7 doubles and 2 home runs to help the Sounds go 5-2 over the last week.
Brugman had four multi-hit games, four multi-RBI games and delivered a go-ahead two-run single in the ninth inning of yesterday’s 7-4 win over the Oklahoma City Dodgers.
Brugman joined the Sounds on May 21st after being promoted from Double-A Midland. In 22 games with Nashville, he’s hitting .333 (33-for-99) with 25 RBI, 18 runs scored, 14 doubles and 3 home runs. The 33 hits and 14 doubles lead the league during that time frame.
This is the first weekly honor in Brugman’s brief minor league career. The Arizona native was drafted by the Athletics in the 17th round of the 2013 MLB First-Year Player Draft out of BYU.
It’s the second time this season a Sounds player has been honored by the league. Left-hander Dillon Overton won the PCL Pitcher of the Week for his performance from April 18th-24th.
The last Sounds player to be named PCL Player of the Week was Ryan Roberts for the week of August 3rd-9th of 2015.
The Sounds begin an eight-day, nine-game homestand when they welcome the Triple-A affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals, the Memphis Redbirds, to First Tennessee Park tonight. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05pm.
The 2016 season is the Sounds’ 19th year in the Pacific Coast League and their second as the Oakland Athletics’ top affiliate. Tickets are available now by calling 615.690.4487 or by visiting www.nashvillesounds.com
