Dylan Rheault recognized by the Canadian Baseball Network
by Randy Pascal

A student at both Northeastern Public School and Lasalle Secondary a few years ago, pitcher Dylan Rheault has been named as the Player of the Week by the Canadian Baseball Network recently.

Competing with the Class "A" San Jose Giants, the 6'8" reliever enjoyed a near perfect week of appearances, with details as follows:

June 29th - facing the Stockton Ports with his team leading 8-5 heading into the ninth, Rheault needed only four batters to register his sixth save of the year, walking one and striking out another. He threw just 18 pitches, 11 for strikes in lowering his ERA to 2.76

June 30th - it was a much more low-scoring affair when Rheault was summoned the next night on the road, his team clinging to a precarious 2-1 lead in the ninth against the Modesto Nuts. After enticing a fly ball from the first hitter, Rheault relinquished a single to Gianfranco Wawoe, but bailed himself out thanks to a strike out and throw out at second on the attempted steal

July 3rd - pitted against Modesto for the second time in the four game series, Rheault was even more dominant, closing off a 3-1 win with a 1-2-3 ninth inning that included a strikeout and just 15 total pitches, 11 for strikes. In increasing his save total to eight, he lowered his ERA to 2.60

Though it did not count for the week in question, Rheault showed little signs of slowing down in recent days. On Thursday against the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes, Rheault was asked to deliver two full innings of hitless ball, facing the minimum six batters and earning his ninth save in a 3-2 win.

Rheault now holds down sole possession of third place in saves in the California League. The Garson native moved to Chicago while still in high school before attending Central Michigan University. He was originally drafted by the Baltimore Orioles in 2013, but was released and signed by the Giants this spring.
