Joey Votto (Etobicoke, Ont) was named National League Player of the Week for the week of April 23 to 29. It was the fifth time in his career that he has won this honour.
The Canadian slugger batted .348 with four home runs and a .913 slugging percentage in seven games that week.
Earlier in the month, Jameson Taillon, who maintains a Canadian citizenship and pitched for Canada in the 2013 World Baseball Classic, took home the same award, after he went 2-0 with a 1.26 ERA in two starts during the week of April 2 to April 8.
The following is a complete list of Canadians that have won either the American League or National League Player of the Week Award since it was introduced in 1974:
