Anything can happen in seven days. Stars can shine (hello, Mike Trout) and lesser-known names can emerge (hi, Adam Conley).

That’s the beauty of Team of the Week. Yes, it leans inherently on small samples. But small samples are fun; just ask the playoffs.

In case you’re new to the party: We’re picking one player per position, including a designated hitter and starting pitcher, based on what they accomplished between April 29 and May 5.

This is mostly about individual output, but bonus points are awarded if gaudy numbers translated to ticks in the win column.

As ever, feel free to chime in with your own picks in the comments, tap off your metaphorical cleats and proceed when ready.
