Outfielder Donnie Dewees played for the North Florida Ospreys from 2013-2015 and is one step closer on his path to the majors.  After getting traded from the Chicago Cubs to the Kansas City Royals organization, Dewees has steadily climbed the ladder inching closer to playing in Kansas City. In his first two years in the Cubs organization, he played 195 games in Low-A and High-A with a .278 batting average.  He also had 39 doubles and 15 triples within that span.

After getting traded to the Kansas City Royals he was placed in the Royals Double-A team called the Northwest Arkansas Naturals. In the two years he played for the team, he finished with 196 games, a .264 batting average while slicing 36 doubles and 11 triples.  Dewees recently was promoted to Kansas City’s Triple-A team, the Omaha Storm Chasers. He has only played seven games so far and has eight hits in 28 at bats, sporting a .286 batting average. With Dewees’ consistency at the plate, it would be no surprise if he’s a September call up for the Royals.
