DOTEL NAMED HITTER OF THE MONTH
EL PASO, TX – The official statistician of the American Association, Pointstreak, has selected El Paso OF Welington Dotel as the Pointstreak Hitter of the Month. The announcement comes after a successful month for El Paso, and a current 5 game winning streak.
Dotel, 26, joined the Diablos roster July 3, and has since made a big impression. In just 25 games and 116 at bats, Dotel is hitting a .414 avg with 48 hits, 22 runs, and 27 RBIs.
The outfielder went 5-for-6 with three RBI in his second game with the club. Dotel then proved the performance was no fluke. Though he did not exhibit power, Dotel was productive both at the plate and on the bases, stealing 13 bases. Dotel’s late inning success has helped El Paso pull through with a string of victories, including his walk off one-out single on July 29 in the 10th inning against Amarillo going 3 for 6 with 2 RBIs.
Matt LaBranche, Diablos Managing Partner and President, has been impressed with Dotel’s contribution to the club. “Dotel has been a great addition to our lineup, helping to make July a successful month for El Paso.”
