The Topeka, KS native returned to
the Aeros from Class AAA Columbus on August 17 and promptly went 6-16 (.375),
with six runs, six RBI, three homers and three walks in six games. Through two
stints with Akron thus far in 2010, Head has hit .315 with 15 homers and 65 RBI

The Akron Aeros will award their
Player of the Week honor to an individual player every Monday for the rest of
the season. In the case of a Monday closure of the team offices, the Aeros will
announce the award Tuesday. Akron catcher Juan Apodaca won the award last week.
This week, the separate Eastern League Player-Pitcher of the Week Awards went
to Reading’s Tagg Bozied and Trenton’s Adam Warren, respectively.
