Nationals infielder Mark Reynolds is coming off one of the best weeks you'll ever see from a Major Leaguer.

The 34-year-old went 10-for-16 with two doubles, three homers, three walks, 12 RBI and seven runs scored. That's good for a .625/.684/.1.313 slash line and 1.997 OPS. Ten of those RBI came in one game, during Saturday's 18-4 drubbing of the Marlins, in which Reynolds homered twice.

Reynolds on Monday was named National League Player of the Week, because of course.

On the season, Reynolds is averaging .300 at the plate with three doubles, 10 home runs, 24 RBI and 13 walks. As a reminder, Reynolds went unsigned all offseason.

Oh, and Reynolds threw a scoreless one-third in garbage time, to finish a lopsided 10-2 loss to Miami on Sunday and maintain his flawless 0.00 career ERA.

Have a week, Mark Reynolds.
