The Carolina League office announced on Monday that Wilmington Blue Rocks Outfielder Anderson Miller was named the Carolina League Player of the Week.
Miller was on fire last week going 10-for-24 (.417 hitting %), 2 home runs, drove in six runs and had a .500 on base percentage. The Wilmington outfielder might have been on fire this week but really Miller has been on quite a streak since April 14. Miller had a career high 30 game on base streak that ended Tuesday which is second in Rocks history to only former Blue Rock Eric Hosmer who had 33 games on-base in 2010. Miller’s streak is the fifth longest in the Carolina League in three years.
Also, during the 30 game streak, Miller was hitting .307, 6 home runs, 20 RBIs and had 13 walks.
The second year outfielder for the Blue Rocks leads the team in multiple categories including: first in home runs with (6), first with stolen bases (11) and is tied first with runs ( 21). The Kentucky native is second on the team with RBIs (24) and third in walks (18).
Miller is the second Blue Rock in back to back weeks to receive this award, Elier Hernandez won the same honor last week.
