Players of the Week, June 21-27: Bubba Bell and Robert Coello


A pair of PawSox players nabbed the honors this week after impressive displays in the International League. Bubba Bell, far and away his team's best hitter on the week, was named Player of the Week, while Robert Coello was impressive enough in his start last Tuesday to be selected as Pitcher of the Week, as voted on by SoxProspects.com members.

On top of being his team's only consistent hitter last week, Bell also had the best week in the organization, posting a .566/.600/.833 line in 18 at bats. 2 of his 10 hits were doubles, and he also added a home run. Bell also drove in 3 runs on the week before leaving Saturday night's game after getting plunked in the leg in his first plate appearance. He is batting .308 with an .803 OPS on the season.

Coello's one start last week was enough to earn him the honors, as the former independent league pitcher struck out 10 in his first Triple-A start Tuesday. He yielded 4 hits, including a solo home run, and walked just 1 in 5.2 innings. The second-inning home run marked the end of his streak of 7.2 scoreless innings to begin his Triple-A career. Coello was 4-1 with a 3.32 ERA in 14 appearances with Portland before his mid-June promotion.
