Masataka Yoshida has been crushing it for the Red Sox in his rookie season in Major League Baseball, and recently recorded the 500th RBI of his professional career.
The Red Sox outfielder, who currently has 507 RBIs after a successful tenure in Japan, also moved up the ranks in the American League as it relates to batting average. He’s currently second with a .318 clip.
In his past seven games, he’s been keeping the Red Sox offense alive while batting .435 with five runs and four RBIs along with a .739 slugging percentage.
His hot streak and career milestone make him a no-brainer for this week’s VA Hero of the Week. For more on Masa’s incredible run with the Red Sox, check out the full video above presented by VA New England Healthcare.
