Braves slugger Marcell Ozuna and Royals speedster Adalberto Mondesi were named MLB's Players of the Week presented by Chevrolet for the final week of the 2020 regular season on Monday.

Ozuna's surge to the National League home run crown netted him NL Player of the Week honors, and Mondesi's race to the MLB stolen-base title made him American League Player of the Week.

All-time Player of the Week winners: AL | NL

Ozuna hit .500 and slugged .923 over the final week with three home runs and eight RBIs for the NL East champs. His homer on the last day of the season won him both the NL home run title (18) and RBI titles (56).

Mondesi led MLB for the week in batting average (.615), on-base percentage (.655) and slugging percentage (1.154), as well as runs scored (10) and stolen bases (five). He finished the season with 24 steals to lead the Majors.

This is Ozuna's fifth career Player of the Week Award and second this month -- he also won for the week of Sept. 6 -- while it's the first career Player of the Week Award for Mondesi.
