It may come as no surprise to Cubs fans, but Cubs’ first baseman Frank Schwindel was named National League Player of the Week for August 30-September 5.

Schwindel has been one of the hottest players in baseball since joining the Cubs after the epic sell-off. During Schwindel’s hot week, the legend himself is hitting .462 while accumulating an impressive 1.538 OPS and 299 wRC+. Keep in mind, 100 is league average for wRC+.

In addition, five of Schwindel’s 10 home runs with the team came last week. He was also the first player in the last 40 years to have a go-ahead RBI in the sixth inning or later in four consecutive games. The animated first baseman has truly become a legend at Wrigley Field.

The Cubs continue their series with the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday at 6:40 PM CDT. The Cubs look to extend their current league-best win streak to eight games.
