ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. — Felix Hernandez didn’t get a victory Sunday despite a career-high 15 strikeouts over seven shutout innings, but he was selected Monday as the American League’s player of the week for June 2-8.

Hernandez won his other start last week by holding the Yankees to two runs in seven innings in an 10-2 victory. He had 23 strikeouts, one walk over 14 innings in two starts while allowing two runs and 12 hits.

It marked the second time that Hernandez has won the award; he won it in 2012 in the week that he pitched a perfect game against the Rays. He has been the AL pitcher of the month on three occasions.
