The West Coast League Player of the Week and Pitcher of the Week, as announced by league president Donnie Marbut, are Chico State junior right-hander Dalton Erb of the Victoria HarbourCats and Cal frosh outfielder Jeffrey Mitchell, Jr. of the Gresham GreyWolves for the week of June 6-12.
The San Diego Padres selected Erb in the 30th round of the MLB June draft this past Saturday. Prior to the draft, Dalton tossed a gem vs. Wenatchee at Royal Athletic Park on June 7, twirling 8 shutout innings while striking out 13 and only allowing a hit and walk in Victoria's 11-1 win over the AppleSox.
This past spring, Erb made 15 starts and went 6-3 with a 3.62 ERA for Chico State.
Mitchell went 11-for-20 with 7 runs scored, 5 RBIs and a double, triple and stolen base over the GreyWolves first week of WCL baseball, as Gresham started the season 3-3.
The native of Pleasant Hill, California made 25 appearances and totaled 26 at bats in his freshman season at Cal Berkley.
