LHP Gunnar Kines and OF Jose M. Medina were named the New York-Penn League Pitcher and Player of the Week for the period of July 10th - 16th. Kines, a Minor League Free Agent signed by the Mets earlier this season, tossed 10.0 shutout innings over the span, allowing just two hits with three walks and nine strikeouts - including an affiliated career-high 6 punchouts on July 11th at Mahoning Valley. The southpaw also tossed 6.0 near-flawless frames, allowing just one sun-aided base hit, in his start on July 16th. Kines became the 27th Cyclones to be named Pitcher of the Week, and the first since RHP Gary Cornish in 2016.
OF Jose M. Medina hit .400 (10-25) including a game-winning hit against State College on July 16th, during the span. He is the first position player to win the award since Cole Frenzel during the period of June 25 - July 1, 2012. That is also the last time the Cyclones won Pitcher / Player of the Week in the same week when Frenzel and RHP Luis Mateo were both honored with the award.
