Charlie Blackmon is the NL Player of the Week |

Charlie Blackmon began a stretch of what should be multiple awards being announced over the next month or so.

His overall season numbers are still ugly, but if you look at the numbers since his return from the DL, the picture is much better. Since his return, Story is batting .304/.407/.696 with almost as many walks as strikeouts.
