Braves outfielder Jason Heyward was named National League player of the week on Monday after hitting a scorching .522 (12-for-23) in six games, with three doubles, three home runs and five RBIs.

Heyward led the league last week in batting average and slugging percentage (1.130) and was fourth with a .542 on-base percentage. Heyward takes a 10-game hitting streak into a series with Arizona that opens Tuesday and has hit safely in 18 of his past 22 games.
