Former Cal State Stanislaus pitcher Dakota Watts has been added to the South Division squad for the 2011 Florida State League All-Star Game, representing the Fort Myers Miracle of the High-A affiliate of the Minnesota Twins.
The game will be played today at Bright House Field, home of the Clearwater Threshers in Florida.
Watts played the 2009 season with the Warriors before being drafted in the 16th round by the Twins. In his lone season, he posted an 8-4 record with a 3.65 ERA.
With the Miracle, he holds a 2-2 record with a 4.44 ERA and seven saves. He has also struck out 19 batters.
Watts becomes the second former Warrior pitcher to be selected to a minor league all-star team. Earlier this month, Marquis Fleming was selected to his second consecutive team as he will represent the Montgomery Biscuits of Tampa Bay Rays’ Double-A affiliate in the Southern League All-Star game on Tuesday.
