Just three weeks into the Triple-A phase of his career, Memphis Redbirds infielder Brendan Donovan has been named the Player of the Week for the period of September 6-12 in the Triple-A East League, which consists of 20 teams.
The 24-year-old was trouble in the six-game series in Nashville, batting .474 including three multi-hit games and two home runs. The left-handed hitter plated eight, scored eight runs and stole three bases.

.474/.583/.842, 6 G, 19 AB, 8 R, 9 H, 1 2B, 2 HR, 8 RBI, 4 BB, 3 SO, 3 SB
Memphis is the third stop of 2021 for St. Louis’ seventh-round draft pick in 2018. Donovan began the season at High-A Peoria and was promoted from there and Double-A Springfield. He is The Cardinal Nation’s 17th-ranked prospect.
