Paul Konerko's had quite the eventful start to the MLB season. He's been the buzz of the south side with a batting average of .435, including three doubles, three home runs and four RBI in six games.

To keep his long list of accomplishments going, Pauly became the fourth player in White Sox history to knock his 400th career home run out of the park and was named the American League's Player of the Week for the fifth time in his career.

Philip Humber was named Player of the Week April 16-22 after stunning baseball fans by throwing the MLB's 21st perfect game in the April 21 matchup against the Mariners in Seattle.

The last two White Sox players who won consecutive Player of the Week awards were Konerko and Carlos Quentin at the beginning of the 2011 season.
