Bauer made two starts in the past week, allowing one run in 16 2/3 innings. Opponents hit just .175 against him. On Sunday, he shut down the Tigers to earn his first career shutout and third career complete game. He’s the first Indians pitcher to win Player of the Week since Corey Kluber in September 2017.

He entered the week hitting .295 for the year, and on Monday that average sits at .336. He raised his OPS from .906 entering the week to 1.037.
