Braves minor league outfielder Cory Harrilchak was selected player of the week in the Arizona Fall League after hitting .474 (9-for-19) with three homers and seven RBIs for the Phoenix Desert Dogs.
A 14th-round draft pick out of Elon University in 2009, Harrilchak hit as many homers in the third week in the fall league as he had in 510 plate appearances during the 2010 season at Class A Rome and high-A Myrtle Beach.
The speedy Cary, N.C., native hit .287 with three homers and a .354 on-base percentage at those two stops in his first full season of professional ball. Harrilchak, who turned 23 last week, had 26 doubles, eight triples and 22 stolen bases in 37 attempts during the 2010 season.
