This is what happens when you throw a no-hitter. 

To very little surprise, Yankees starter Corey Kluber was named Co-AL Player of the Week on Monday.

Kluber’s week was punctuated by a no-hitter against the Texas Rangers on the night they gave away a bobblehead doll of him in a Rangers uniform. Oops!

He shared the honor with Detroit’s Spencer Turnbull, who threw a no-hitter of his own last week. Fernando Tatis, Jr., shared Co-NL Player of the Week honors with Atlanta’s Austin Riley, who will face the Mets at Citi Field this week.
