At the age of 29, Gula Kareem might have some potential he hasn’t realized yet — if his success at the plate last week is any indication. The Toronto catcher put up some exceptional numbers the past seven days with a .500 batting average. For his efforts Kareem collected the Lake League Player of the Week Award.
He racked up 15 hits in 30 at-bats, 2 home runs and 5 RBIs last week in 7 games.
In his season totals, Kareem has 13 home runs, .286 BA, .351 OBP, 37 RBIs and 38 runs scored. He has played in 65 games
Toronto has already been eliminated from the playoff run for this year, but looks to be building a solid core of veterans and adding prospects to look at a serious playoff run in 2017.
