Players of the Week, August 31-September 7: Chris Carter & Leandro Marin

Representatives from the organization's highest and lowest full-season affiliates shone brightly last week, as Greenville's Leandro Marin and Pawtucket's Chris Carter were voted the Players of the Week of August 31-September 7 by the SoxProspects.com community. Marin worked 4.1 shutout innings out of the Drive bullpen, allowing 2 hits and 1 walk while striking out 10 over two appearances at Lexington (Astros) on August 31 and against Asheville (Rockies) on September 4. Carter, expected to be the player to be named later in the Billy Wagner trade, bid a fond farewell to the organization that has been his home for two-plus seasons, posting a .500/.552/.885 line with 2 home runs, 4 doubles, 10 runs and 6 RBI in 26 at-bats last week. For the season, Carter hit .294/.358/.465 with 16 home runs, 25 doubles and 61 RBI in 428 at-bats over 116 games. Marin, a 20-year-old righty, worked 43.2 innings innings in relief for Greenville over 27 appearances, allowing 14 earned runs on 31 hits for a 2.89 ERA, striking out 56 while walking 28.
