PORTLAND, Ore. — Portland Beavers utility player Jon Knott has been named to the 2006 All-Pacific Coast League Team, it was announced today.

Jon Knott, 28, was selected by league general managers, field managers and media representatives as the top designated hitter in the league and is Portland’s sole player on the 12-man team that includes the best players at each position, including the top left-hander, right-hander and relief pitcher.

Going into Monday night’s game at Fresno, Knott leads the league with 28 home runs and 104 RBIs, while also ranking second in extra-base hits (63) and fourth in slugging percentage (.554). A 2002 recipient of the Padres Minor League Player of the Year award, Knott first joined the Beavers in 2003 and has spent all of the 2005 and 2006 seasons in Portland.

On Sunday, Knott became the first Beavers player since 1979 to eclipse the 100-RBI mark when he hit a sixth-inning homer to tie the game at 3-3. Knott then hit the game-winning home run in the bottom of the 11th against the Las Vegas 51s at PGE Park.

Knott, who is batting .275 in 127 games this season, is the third Portland player to be selected to the All-PCL Team since the Beavers returned to the league in 2001, joining second baseman Bernie Castro (2003) and right-handed pitcher Brian Sweeney (2004).

On Tuesday, the league will announce its Rookie of the Year.
