Friday, August 26, 2005

Former first-round pick Blake Dewitt was promoted from Columbus to Vero Beach to help the Dodgers with their playoff run. The third baseman was batting .283 with 11 home runs and 65 RBI at the time of his promotion. He was one of the league leaders in doubles with 31 as he led the Catfish in most offensive categories in his 120 games played. The Catfish have not yet received another player to take DeWitt's spot on the roster. DeWitt is a 2004 graduate of Sikeston High School as he was named a first team All-American his senior year by Baseball America magazine.
