Players of the Week, July 19-25; Kyle Weiland and Chih-Hsien Chiang

Portland Sea Dog teammates, Kyle Weiland and Chih-Hsien Chiang, were voted by the SoxProspects community as this week's Pitcher and Player of the Week.

In his first season in Double-A, Weiland has impressed thus far, putting up an ERA of 3.82 in 94.1 innings while collecting 91 strikeouts. The 23-year-old right-hander dominated the SoxProspects Pitcher of the Week voting due to his miniscule 0.71 ERA and 0.55 WHIP over 12.2 innings. He was also able to strikeout 15 batters, while only issuing 1 free pass.

Chiang, 22, has also been getting his first taste of Double-A ball this season, but has not had the same level of success as Weiland thus far. Last week may be the start to a strong finish to his season, as he just beat out Daniel Nava to become the week's top performer. In 6 games over that time period, he batted .391 with 1 home run and 4 doubles. He also walked 1 time, and finished the week with an OBP of .440.
