++++++++++Arendas named Midwest League Player of the Week++++++++++
D.C. Arendas earns league player of the week honors after connecting for three triples and three home runs with five RBI and three runs scored between May 6 and 12.

Minor League Baseball has named Burlington Bees'(Burlington, Iowa) first baseman D.C. Arendas the Midwest League Player of the Week for May 6-12.

In six games, Arendas averaged .381, posted an on-base percentage of .480 and slugged 1.000. The North Carolina native had three triples, three home runs, five runs batted in and scored three runs for the week. The Bees played three games at Bowling Green and three games against Dayton. Arendas was 8-for 21 at the plate.

Signed as a free agent in February of this year, the University of South Carolina alum had been out of baseball since completing his college eligibility in 2016. He was living in Texas working with younger players when the Los Angeles Angels scouted him at a facility near his home. A good Spring Training performance earned him a spot on the Burlington roster.

For the season, Arendas is hitting .268 in 24 games. He has walked 17 times, carries a .424 on-base percentage and his slugging .973.
