Following a week full of doubles and driving in runs, Athletics third baseman Josh Donaldson on Monday was rewarded with his first career American League Player of the Week honors.

Donaldson, 27, went 12-for-22 (.545) last week with seven doubles, 10 RBIs, seven walks and four runs scored. He led all AL hitters in doubles and on-base percentage (.633), while finishing tied atop the AL leaderboard in batting average, RBIs and walks.

The blistering week at the plate raised Donaldson's batting average 73 points from .246 to its current .319, entering play Monday. He also more than doubled his season RBI total, which sat at eight entering the week.

Donaldson drove in at least one run in six of Oakland's seven games last week, starting with a 2-for-3, two-double, two-RBI performance last Monday against the Red Sox. It marked just the second two-double game of Donaldson's career, though he soon added his third later in the week.
