Kevin Mager, IF, Greenville Drive - 6 G, 20 AB, 25 PA, 8 H, 2 HR, 1 2B, 5 R, 5 RBI, 4 BB/2 K, .400/.520/.750
It's always fun when a player off the radar screen of even the most diehard prospect maven takes home Player of the Week honors, and Mager, a undrafted free agent out of Division II Rollins College (FL) in 2012, did just that. He did most of his damage against Kannapolis (CHW) going 4 for 4 with three runs scored and taking a base-on-balls Friday, April 11 and hitting both home runs and his double in the series.
Season line: .375/.487/.668, 9 G, 12 for 34, 3 HR, 1 2B, 7 R and 6 RBI.

He is currently the third-ranked player in the organization by SoxProspects.com.
