One month of the Major League Baseball season is in the books and with that we've got your AL and NL Players of the Week.

American League:

Didi Gregorius (Yankees):

Gregorius has been a revelation early this year for the New York Yankees. He hit .357/.419/.821 with 10 RBIs, scored seven runs, and hit four home runs this past week. He's continually come up with big hits for one of the best offenses in all of baseball, has been the bat that's shinned the brightest among Giancarlo Stanton, Aaron Judge, and Gary Sanchez, and has played great defense. He's committed only two errors on the season and oh yeah, he's had to replace a baseball legend in Derek Jeter, no big deal.

National League:

Joey Votto (Reds):

The Cincinnati Reds first baseman struggled big time out of the gate of this 2018 season where it took him nearly two weeks to record an extra base hit! However, Votto picked it up this past week as he slashed .360/.543/.880 all while recapturing that extraordinary eye he's shown over his career drawing nine walks and striking out just five times. This is a guy who's finished in the top 10 of MVP voting six times in his career, winning one in 2010, and now he's 34 years old coming down the back-nine of his career.
