The 30-year-old slugger batted .429, going 12-for-28, with three homers and five runs scored to earn the award. He led the AL in RBIs with 12,tied for first in home runs, second in hits (12) and sixth in batting average.
Gonzalez was clutch all throughout the White Sox series, most notably during the opener when he launched a three-run, eighth-inning bomb over the Monster to break a 1-1 stalemate and put the Sox in prime position to eventually snag a 5-1 victory.
Let's hope this isn't the last time this season that we see Gonzo put up the type of numbers needed to be recognized as AL Player of the Week.
