A pair of Dodgers minor leaguers took home weekly honors on Monday thanks to stand out performances last week. Tim Shibuya was named Texas League Pitcher of the Week and outfielder DJ Peters was named California League Player of the Week.
Shibuya pitched 16 scoreless innings in two starts for Double-A Tulsa, including coming within one out of a no-hitter last Monday night. The veteran right-hander struck out seven and walked one, allowing just eight hits in his 16 innings.
Peters was 13-for-29 (.448) last week with three home runs, dour doubles, a triple, seven runs scored and seven RBI in seven games for Class-A Rancho Cucamonga. His big game came Wednesday in San Jose, when he hit two home runs against a rehabbing Madison Bumgarner in one inning.
Peters, who was drafted by the Dodgers in the fourth round in 2016, has a 14-game hitting streak. This is the third Cal League Player of the Week award for Peters this season.
