Blewett most recently pitched for Lake County and Fargo-Moorhead last season, collecting seven wins and building a 1.8 strikeout to walk ratio.
“Dan is a quality starter that we look forward to having in the rotation,” added Kevin Cope, the Director of Player Personnel for the Otters. “Dan has been in the league before and did very well.”
