Cubs first base prospect Dan Vogelbach was named the Double-A Southern League Player of the Week for his efforts between April 20-26. This is the second consecutive week the 22-year-old has claimed the award.

During the six-game span, he hit .391/.517/.913 (AVG/OBP/SLG) in 23 at-bats with three homers, three doubles, six walks, 10 RBI and eight runs scored. Vogelbach’s .552 on-base percentage leads all of minor league baseball, and he also tops the Southern League in hits (24), total bases (40), walks (13), extra-base hits (10) and RBI (13). He has reached base in all 15 games played this season.

Vogelbach becomes the first player in the Southern League to receive this honor in back-to-back weeks since third baseman Kris Bryant achieved the feat for his strong two-week stretch from May 26-June 9.
