Bisons' Leblebijian named IL Batter of the Week


The International League today announced that Buffalo Bisons Infielder Jason Leblebijian has been named the league's Batter of the Week for the period of May 29-June 4.

Leblebijian, the current leader among IL third baseman in Triple-A All-Star online fan voting, paced the circuit over the past seven days with a .481 batting average, 13 hits, 22 total bases and eight runs scored. He started his week with a bang on Memorial Day, homering twice as part of a four-hit, four-RBI afternoon in Charlotte. Before the week ended, he produced three more multi-hit games, including three hits Sunday to help the Bisons complete a three-game sweep of the Knights at Coca-Cola Field.

For the season, Leblebijian ranks in the Top 5 in the International League with a .318 batting average (2nd), a .391 on-base percentage (4th), and a .534 slugging percentage (4th). He also leads the Bisons and is tied for 6th in the IL with 36 RBI.
