Mariano Rivera earns first AL Player of the Week honors

Mariano Rivera earns first AL Player of the Week honors - Mariano Rivera was named this week's American League Player of the Week, beating out Scott Kazmir, Josh Hamilton and Johnny Damon for the honor.

Rivera appeared in four games, picking up three saves in the process. He gave up one hit and two walks (his first two of the season), striking out seven in five innings. Mo is 15-for-15 in save opportunities this season, the longest such streak of his career to open a season.

Amazingly enough, this is the first time in Rivera's Hall of Fame career that he has won this award.
