Yasmani Grandal was selected best Latin player of the week just ended. He collected 10 hits in 15 at-bats, with 11 RBIs and four runs scored.
On Sunday he became a hero when he came as an emerging and hit a providential home run to break a tie to 0 that had spread to the 13 inning. The next day he showed that his home run was no fluke and produced three hits in four at-bats. But it was the game held on Thursday 7th that finally made him the most valuable Latin, as he hit four hits, two home runs and drove to 8 teammates found in circulation.
It was the best game of his career, which has been hit by injuries and a doping ban that caused him to miss 50 games. Last year, the last one he played with San Diego, he had its most stable season, where he played 128 games and hit 15 home runs. With this team he left his name in the record books, by becoming the only player who has managed to bounce the ball hitting left-handed and right in his first game as a starter in the majors.
