Right fielder Jermaine Dye of the Chicago White Sox and closer Mariano Rivera of the New York Yankees have been named the American League Co-Players of the Week…

In six games last week, Dye led the Majors with a .500 (12-24) batting average, 25 total bases and four doubles while also notching three home runs and six RBI. The 35-year-old posted a Major League-best 1.042 slugging percentage in addition to his .520 on-base percentage. Last week, the two-time A.L. All-Star right fielder compiled six consecutive multi-hit games and increased his home run total to a club-best 18. On Sunday, Dye hit a solo home run in the eighth inning en route to a 6-0 win over the rival Chicago Cubs at U.S. Cellular Field. The home run marked his 155th with the Chicago White Sox, passing Bill Melton and giving Dye sole possession of seventh on the club’s all-time list. The 17th-round selection in the 1993 First-Year Player Draft is currently hitting .287 with 18 home runs and 45 RBI entering play today. This marks Jermaine’s sixth career weekly award.

I wonder if Jermaine will earn any more of those as a member of the Sox.
