LOS ANGELES — Dodgers minor league outfielder and first baseman O’Koyea Dickson was named the Pacific Coast League Player of the Week for the final week of the regular season, the PCL announced on Tuesday.

Dickson had a stellar final week for Triple-A Oklahoma City, during the period from Aug. 29 to Sept. 5, going 13-for-26 with three home runs, three doubles, a triple and 10 RBI in his six games, hitting .500/.500/1.038.

His week was highlighted by a two-homer game on Aug. 29 against Memphis. Dickson’s last six starts in the field have been multi-hit games.

The Dodgers drafted Dickson in the 12th round of 2011 out of Sonoma State. The 26-year-old right-hander had his best season in 2016 with Oklahoma City, hitting .328/.398/.556 with 28 doubles and 18 home runs in 101 games.

Dickson mixed time between the outfield and first base this year, starting 29 games at first base, 28 games in left field, 26 games as designated hitter, and two games in right field.

This is the second Player of the Week Award in Dickson’s career. He also won one in the Southern League in 2014 with Double-A Chattanooga.

Old friend Joe Wieland was named the PCL Pitcher of the Week, with 17 strikeouts in his two starts for Tacoma. The Dodgers traded Wieland to Seattle on Jan. 12 for minor league infielder Erick Mejia.
