Players of the Week, April 15-21: Brandon Snyder and Brandon Workman

A pair of familiar faces were awarded SoxProspects.com Player and Pitcher of the Week honors. Pawtucket's Brandon Snyder (pictured) was honored for the second consecutive week, while Brandon Workman tied Portland teammate Matt Barnes as a career six-time winner, the most of any current minor leaguer.

Snyder followed up his 7 for 15 performance when he won two weeks ago with an 8 for 16 showing last week. Snyder had a base hit in each of his five games, including a solo home run and two-run double as part of Wednesday's 6-1 victory over Lehigh Valley.

Workman was awarded for his dominant performance in Wednesday's victory at Binghamton. Throwing seven shutout innings, Workman allowed only four hits, striking out nine without walking a batter. Workman had most recently won Pitcher of the Week for August 13-19, 2012. He is currently the 14th-ranked prospect on SoxProspects.com.
