Gavin’s 13 K’s, Teter’s 12 RBI Earns Them Weekly Awards

Chicago Dogs infielder Jacob Teter and Kansas City Monarchs starter Grant Gavin won the American Association’s batter and pitcher of the week for the week ending 6/16, the league announced Monday.

Teter was the lead run producer in the league this week, going 10-for-23 at the plate (.435) with three home runs, a double and 12 RBI in seven games.

The slugger had two five-RBI games this week, one on Monday where he hit two home runs and one on Thursday where he had a bases clearing double in addition to a two-run single.

This is Teter’s first year in the Association after spending time in both the Baltimore Orioles and Houston Astros minor league systems.

On the pitching side, Gavin had quite the start in Milwaukee on Friday night. The right-hander went seven shutout frames allowing just four hits, no walks and striking out 13 Milkmen.

It may have been his best outing thus far in what’s been a good start to the season, as he currently has a 3-1 record with a 2.82 ERA and 53 strikeouts in just 35 innings pitched.

The 2023 AAPB all-star is in year two with the Monarchs after spending time in both the Kansas City Royals and San Diego Padres organizations.
