The Dodgers’ triple-a player of the week could easily have gone to a few different people. Since the selection comes with a twist, here is a quick rundown of the players that were considered for this spot.

Outfielder Alex Verdugo had a stellar week highlighted by a game-winning home run.

Tim Locastro continued his hot start with the bat as he is still hitting well over .300 and used his speed to score some crucial runs for the team.

Lastly, Henry Ramos, the birthday boy, hit his second grand slam of the season in three games.

But, the Triple-A minor leaguer of the week may surprise you as he is no longer in the minors. Our guy is Max Muncy. Muncy, who was called up to the major leagues on Tuesday, April 19th and the reason was that he was just so hot at Triple-A.

In 32 at-bats prior to his call-up, Muncy hit .313 with two doubles and two home runs. He essentially continued a torrid spring training that left many wondering if he would just make the opening day roster.

Muncy’s minor league success was the major driving force to his Dodgers Way Triple-A Player of the Week Award but so too has been his time in the majors. Muncy has two hits in his first five at-bats, a single and a home run, and has also walked once. Muncy could be the change of pace player this team needed.
