Dayton, OH – Ottawa Champions OF Malik Collymore is the Can-Am League’s Batter of the Week, respectively for the week of August 12-18, as selected by Pointstreak, the league’s official statistician.
Last week, Collymore torched Can-Am League opponents by hitting .440 (11-25) with nine runs scored, two doubles, one homer, six RBIs and seven stolen bases. This torrid stretch was fueled by his posting three multi-hit games including a four-hit performance (4-6 with one RBI and one stolen base) in a 10-8 win against the Sussex County Miners and a three-hit game (3-4 with one double, one homer, two runs scored) in a 15-0 victory over the New Jersey Jackals. Plus he discombobulated the Jackals on the bases by scoring back-to-back three stolen base games.
Currently in his seventh season of professional baseball, Collymore has emerged as an electric catalyst for the Champions’ offense with a .268 batting average (73-272), 49 runs scored, 10 doubles, 3 triples, 4 homers, 26 RBIs and 41 stolen bases. The 24-year-old native of Mississauga, Canada was drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals out of Port Credit SS (Mississauga, ON) in the 10th round of the 2013 MLB June Amateur Draft. Along spending two and a half seasons in the Cardinals organization, he also played in the Milwaukee Brewers and Cincinnati Reds farm systems. The Brewers acquired him in a trade deadline deal for MLB veteran setup man Jonathan Broxton on July 31, 2015.
