Aeros outfielder Tim Fedroff was selected as the Eastern League Player of the Week for the period of May 16th-May 22nd.
in seven games last week, the 24-year old batted .583 (14-for-24) with two doubles, a triple, eight runs scored, five RBI, two stolen bases, four walks and a .750 slugging percentage.
The 5-foot-11, 220-pound slugger also had four multiple-hit games during the week, including going 3-for-5 with a triple, walk, three RBI and three runs scored in a 16-6 win over the Altoona Curve Tuesday at Canal Park.
With his performance last week the Flagtown, N. J., native extended his hitting streak to 16 games, which is the second longest streak in the Eastern League this season. Fedroff is hitting .492 with 13 RBI and 11 runs scored during the streak.
In addition, Fedroff led all E.L. players in batting average (.583), hits (14), runs scored (eight), total bases (18), on-base percentage (.643) and OPS (1.393) last week. He also owns a league-best .376 batting average in 39 games for the Aeros this season.
He was selected by the parent-club Indians in the seventh round of the 2008 draft after hitting .404 with 12 home runs, 78 runs scored and 71 RBI in 67 games during his sophomore season at the University of North Carolina.
The Aeros kick off an eight-game home stand beginning tonight at 7:05 pm when they host Harrisburg for the first of four games. After the Harrisburg series, the Aeros host Richmond for four games at Canal Park through Memorial Day.
