BOSTON -- Indians third baseman Casey Blake is the American League Player of the Week.

Blake hit .347 (8-for-23) with four homers and eight RBI. He scored eight runs and hit three doubles and one triple.

He's hit in 18 of his last 20 games, batting .347 (26-for-75) over that stretch.

The versatile Blake has started five games at first, seven in right field and 33 at third. He's hit second (25 starts), fourth (one), fifth (seven), sixth (six), seventh (one) and eighth (one) in the lineup.

Blake took over third base when Andy Marte was injured in April and has solidified the No.2 spot in manager Eric Wedge's lineup.
