May 16, 2022 Springfield, MO – Minor League Baseball announced on Monday that Springfield Cardinals 1B Chandler Redmond has been named the Texas League Player of the Week for May 9-15. It marks the third time already this season that a Cardinal has won the weekly award, with OF Moises Gomez claiming it in consecutive weeks for April 11-17 and April 18-24.
Redmond was a force at the plate this past week, hitting .450 (9×20) with a league-best three home runs and nine RBIs while pacing the circuit with a .950 slugging percentage and tallying a 1.405 OPS. The 25 year old hit safely in all five games he played against Amarillo on the week, homering in back-to-back contests on Saturday and Sunday.
The native of Middletown, MD is batting .275 with five home runs, 22 RBIs and five doubles through the first 25 games of his first full season of Double-A this year. Redmond was drafted by St. Louis in the 32nd round of the 2019 MLB Draft out of Gardner-Webb University.
