The West Coast League's Moss Adams Player of the Week, as announced by league commissioner Rob Neyer, is St. Mary's sophomore-to-be shortstop Gio Diaz of the Portland Pickles for the week of July 9-16.

Diaz, who is second in the league in hitting with a .362 batting average, went 12-for-22 with 8 runs scored, 2 doubles, 2 homers and 6 RBIs. For the summer, Diaz has blasted 9 doubles and 5 home runs while collecting 25 RBIs and swiping a league-leading 15 bases.
