Today must be a great day to be an outfielder for the Binghamton Mets. I recently reported the praises that Cesar Puello has been getting with his strong start to the season, and now Cory Vaughn is getting recognized. Lynn Worthy reported on twitter he has just been named Eastern League Player of the Week.
Vaughn hit .400 last week, which included one home run, two doubles, nine RBIs, and five runs scored. It’s no secret that Vaughn has been hitting the ball well, and it’s nice to see him get a little face time for it. The right-handed hitter is currently riding a seven-game hitting streak, and has registered multi-hit performances in four of those games.
While he’s been on fire of late, Vaughn has been performing rather well since the start of Binghamton’s season. He’s put together a .307/.392/.500 line with five homers and 27 RBIs. His batting average is good enough for ninth in the Eastern League, while he ranks 11th in RBIs. The B-Mets didn’t let his efforts this week go to waste, as the squad went 5-1. Their season record now stands at 24-19, sitting one game behind the first place Portland Sea Dogs.
Congratulations, Cory! It’s always nice to get recognized for a great week at the plate.
