CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — First baseman Seth Beer of the Hooks was named today the Texas League Player of the Week.

Beer was on fire last week with a .583 batting average on 14 for 24 hitting with three homers.

He also scored 16 runs, plated eight RBI and even reached base four times on hit by pitches.

The 22-year-old is currently batting .323 with 19 homers.

Beer is the Astros’ No. 8 prospect after being selected in the first round last year out of Clemson.
