Carlos Frias, Jonathan Martinez and Edinson Bock all won pitcher of the week honors at their respective minor league levels on Monday.

LOS ANGELES -- Monday was a busy day for weekly awards, and Dodgers ace Clayton Kershawthe National League Player of the Week — wasn't the only one in the organization to be recognized. A trio of Dodgers minor league pitchers were honored on Monday as well.

Carlos Frias of Triple-A Albuquerque captured Pacific Coast League pitcher of the week honors with a pair of wins and 17 strikeouts in 13 innings. The right-hander struck out 10 while allowing one run in eight innings on Monday against New Orleans, then followed that up with five scoreless innings and seven strikeouts in Iowa on Saturday. Frias, 24, is the first Isotopes pitcher to win PCL pitcher of the week honors since Dana Eveland, who captured the honors from July 25 to Aug. 1, 2011.

Frias, who was invited to big league camp in spring training this year as a non-roster invitee, is 5-4 with a 5.10 ERA in 11 games, including 10 starts, in the hitter-friendly PCL, with 54 strikeouts and 16 walks in 65⅓ innings with the Isotopes. He began the season 2-1 with a 3.38 ERA with five starts in Double-A Chattanooga.

Class-A Great Lakes right-hander Jonathan Martinez won Midwest League pitcher of the week honors thanks to his one start. He pitched six scoreless innings on Thursday against Dayton, allowing only three hits and walking none while striking out seven. Martinez, who turns 20 on Friday, is 5-5 with a 3.46 ERA in 14 starts, with 65 strikeouts and just 12 walks in 78 innings this season.

Edinson Bock was named Pioneer League pitcher of the week with a pair of stellar relief appearances for rookie-level Ogden. The 20-year-old right-hander, who like Martinez was signed out of Venezuela in 2011, pitched six hitless innings in his two games, with seven strikeouts and three walks for the Raptors.
