The league's hottest hitter was given a small prize as he chases the grand trophy.

Boston Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. earned American League Player of the Week honors, alongside the National League's top player Jose Fernandez.

Bradley Jr. is in the midst of chasing Joe DiMaggio's hit-streak record as he sits at 21. This week his bat was on fire, going 15-for-32 with three homers and 15 RBIs.

The speedy outfielder beat out Baltimore Orioles center fielder Adam Jones, who batted .500 with four home runs, and nine RBI's while slugging 1.080 over the past seven days.

In the NL, Fernandez dealt, going 2-0 in two starts. He fanned 22 batters over 14 innings of work, good for a sparkling 0.64 ERA while running his record to 8-0.

He edged out teammate Marcell Ozuna, who batted .500 with eight runs, 13 hits, and a .536 OBP.
