An NECBL All-Star during the 2013 season, Donlin is returning to the Newport Gulls for the second consecutive season. Following a year in which he hit .274 with 11 RBI in 34 games with the Gulls, Donlin did not play a game at Washington State in 2014 due to injuries. However, his versatility in the infield will make him a strong competitor to regain his spot as the starting second baseman with the Gulls in 2014.
In his freshman season with Washington State, Donlin played in 35 games (13 starts), hitting .235 with 14 runs, 16 hits, and four RBI. A resident of Woodinville, Washington, his brother (Sean) pitched for the Cougars, and also spent six seasons in Minor League Baseball.
