Catcher Bruce Maxwell named PCL Player of the Week


Catcher Bruce Maxwell was a 2nd-round pick back in 2012, but the A's have taken their time developing him. It's starting to look like he was worth the wait, as he is now crushing the Triple-A Pacific Coast League and has earned Player of the Week honors. It was a short week due to the league's All-Star break, but in four games Maxwell went 11-for-17 with 4 HR, 2 BB, and no strikeouts. His wRC+ now stands at 140, which is top-20 in the 16-team league. It's looking more and more like we'll see Maxwell in Oakland later this summer.
