De Oleo and Mendez Named B45 Baseball IBL Players of the Week

The Intercounty Baseball League (IBL) announced its B45 Baseball Players of the Week for the week of May 22-28.

London Majors catcher Eduardo De Oleo was named Batter of the Week, following a monstrous .538 (7-for-13) weekend which included three home runs and seven RBI — and led the Majors to a 3-0 weekend.

De Oleo, who reached AAA in affiliated baseball, is now hitting .500 on the season with four home runs and 10 RBI in six games with the Majors.

Welland Jackfish right-hander Deivy Mendez was named Pitcher of the Week, following two scoreless relief outings. Mendez threw three shutout innings over two appearances, striking out four batters in the process and earning the win in relief on Sunday at Toronto.

Mendez's career IBL earned run average now sits at 0.86, and he has not allowed a run over 17 regular-season innings since entering the league.
