I failed to note this yesterday, but Triple-A Columbus third baseman Andy Marte was named the International League's Player of the Week yesterday for the period from June 22-28. Marte hit safely in each of his six games for the week, resulting in a League-best .478 batting average. He also had an RBI in five of those games, ending the week with a total of 8 RBI, tied for 2nd in the IL. Marte homered Tuesday and again on Wednesday, and Thursday he tied a season-high with 4 RBI at Rochester. He was also 2nd in the IL in on-base percentage for the week (.538). After entering the 2009 season with a lifetime average of .261, Marte is now among the International League
