SC Player of the Week, Elvywyn of Rivendell

Monday, July 14th, 2036
No single hit brought Elrilwyn Elvywyn Player of the Week honors — the Rivendell Royals first baseman corralled the award with a consistent approach in every at-bat.

“Hitting is all about discipline,” said Elvywyn. “When you lose focus, start to lunge at the ball and swing too aggressively… swinging at a lot of bad pitches… that’s when your average starts to drop and you wind up fighting for playing time. You’re most successful when you concentrate on the ball and make ’em throw strikes.”

Concentrate he did. Elvywyn stroked 10 hits in 21 at-bats while cranking out 3 home runs, 9 RBIs and 7 runs scored.

This season Elvywyn has hit at a .289 clip with 48 RBIs, 14 home runs and 37 runs scored. He has played in 79 games.

A blow for Erurbag Cleavergobber today — team doctors confirmed he will miss 2-3 months with biceps tendinitis. Cleavergobber suffered the injury throwing a pitch. Although officials from the Rivendell Royals are confident he’ll make a full recovery, doubts will persist about Cleavergobber’s ability to return fully fit with an injury of this nature.

Cleavergobber has collected 16 saves for the year with 42 strikeouts and 17 walks in 33.1 innings while registering a 0.81 ERA and a 0-1 won-lost record.
