For the second consecutive year an Oklahoma City Dodgers player was named to the All-Pacific Coast League Team, with third baseman Rob Segedin taking home the honors in 2016. Austin Barnes was named to the 2015 All-PCL team.

Segedin becomes the 10th Oklahoma City player to make the All-PCL team since Oklahoma City joined the league in 1998. Segedin was also named a midseason All-Star this year, his first in the Dodgers organization.

In 103 games with OKC, Segedin hit .319/.392/.598 with 21 home runs and 69 RBIs. His slugging percentage and on-base plus slugging (.989) both rank first in the Pacific Coast League, while Segedin’s batting average and on-base percentage are fourth.

Since being called up on Aug. 7, Segedin has hit .268/.304/.439 with two home runs and 12 RBIs over 18 games (10 starts). He went 2-for-3 with four RBIs in his Dodgers debut, setting a franchise record for most RBIs in a Major League debut.

Segedin has fared particularly well against left-handed pitching, hitting .313 with a home run in 16 at-bats. He has not only impressed at the plate since his call up, but Segedin has also proved serviceable at first base, third base, left field and right field.

The New Jersey native was drafted in the third round of the 2010 draft by the New York Yankees out of Tulane University. Los Angeles acquired Segedin from the Yankees in exchange infielder Ronald Torreyes and pitcher Tyler Olson.
