The West Coast League’s Moss Adams Player of the Week and Pitcher of the Week, as announced by Commissioner Rob Neyer, are Edmonton Riverhawks outfielder Jonny McGill (University of British Columbia) and Bend Elks left-hander Ryan Rembisz (University of Portland).
Last week, McGill went 17 for 28 while driving in seven runs for the Riverhawks. He has a 10-game hitting streak, which includes a multi-hit performance in each of his last six games. Scorching hot at the plate to start this 2023 campaign, the rising junior currently leads the League with a .483 batting average. This spring he garnered first-team All-Cascade Collegiate Conference honors after hitting .392 for the UBC Thunderbirds.
Wednesday night against the Springfield Drifters, Bend’s Rembisz twirled a gem, allowing only two hits and no walks in six scoreless innings. The southpaw, who’s posted a 2.76 ERA in four outings for the Elks this summer, appeared in 15 games with a 4.82 ERA as a sophomore this spring with the Portland Pilots.
