What a week it's been for Albert Almora.

He then left Monday's game with a hamstring injury, and Tuesday he was named Midwest League Player of the Week for the week of May 20-26.

During that span, Almora hit .538 with five doubles, six runs scored, four RBI and two walks.

Almora is currently listed as day-to-day with his hamstring injury.

Stay tuned to CSNChicago.com for the latest episode of "The Foundation: The Story of the 2013 Kane County Cougars," airing later this week and featuring Almora's home debut at Fifth Third Bank Ballpark in Geneva, Ill.
