Potomac, Harrisburg Players Win Honors

Posted May 23, 2005

The Nationals'farm system may not be the deepest in baseball, but it does have its share of standout performers.

In AA Harrisburg

Harrisburg Senators outfielder Dee Haynes has been named the Eastern League’s Player of the Week for the week ending May 22nd. The 6’0”, 205 lb. slugger had an outstanding week for the Senators, hitting .440 (11-for-25) with five doubles, two home runs, 10 RBI, three runs scored and a .880 slugging percentage in six games.

Since joining the Senators on May 13th, Haynes, a native of Columbus, Mississippi, is batting .368 with five doubles, three homers, 14 RBI and four runs scored. The 27-year old last played in the Eastern League during the 2002 season as a member of the New Haven Ravens and was named the Eastern League Rookie of the Year after batting .312 with 21 homers and 89 RBI. Dee was acquired by the Washington Nationals in a trade with the St. Louis Cardinals on May 4th, 2005.

In A Potomac

Potomac Nationals right-hand relief pitcher Anthony Pearson has been named the Carolina League Pitcher of the week for the week of May 9-15.

Pearson, a fifth round pick in 2002, made two relief appearances last week posting wins against Kinston and Myrtle Beach. He pitched a total of 8.2 innings, allowing only one unearned run on three hits. The Baton Rouge, LA native also struck out 10 and walked four during both outings.

Pearson is currently on the Nationals DL with a right elbow strain.
