Cubs News: Frank 'Tank' Schwindel wins National League Player of the Week


by - Senior Editor -

MLB announced on Tuesday that Chicago Cubs first baseman Frank Schwindel was named the National League Player of the Week.

Schwindel hit .462 with five homers, 12 RBIs, 1.538 OPS, and 299 WRC+ in the past week.

During his current eight-game hitting streak, he is batting .441 with six homers and 14 RBIs.

Schwindel is the second player in the expansion era to have a go-ahead RBI in the sixth inning or later in four straight games according to Elias.

"Probably the most fun I've ever had playing baseball these last couple days," Schwindel told reporters recently.

He is batting .374 with 10 homers and 30 RBIs in 33 games as a Cub. He is the third Cubs player in the last sixty years to register 30+ RBIs in their first 33 games with the ballclub joining Joe Pepitone and Andre Dawson.

The Cubs are in the middle of a seven-game winning streak and will try to make it 8 games tonight against the Reds.
