Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto has been named the National League Player of the Week after he led the majors with a .583 batting average over the period.
The Toronto native went 14-for-24 with two home runs, five RBI, a .655 on-base percentage and a .917 slugging percentage. He had multiple hits in five games and helped the Reds to a 4-2 record last week.
It's the third time that Votto has won the weekly honour - he also earned the award in August, 2009 and July, 2011.
Votto is currently second in the National League with a .349 batting average and he leads the majors with a .473 on-base percentage.
The 29-year-old was voted National League MVP in 2010.
