Blevins was an intricate part of helping the Ducks win back-to-back Atlantic League championships in 2012 and 2013, though he started both seasons in the Can-Am League with the Rockland Boulders before joining the Ducks late in each season. 

Bobby Blevins was originally drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 13th round (416th overall) in the 2007 MLB Draft out of Le Moyne College. He pitched four seasons in the Dodgers organization posting a 20-30 record with a 4.32 ERA in 365 innings pitched. 

In 2011, he joined the Rockland Boulders and he had  6-8 record with a 3.98 ERA. 

The following season he rejoined the Boulders and went 8-9 with a 3.65 ERA, but was eventually traded to the Ducks late in the season. He pitched 12 innings for the Ducks in the 2012 playoffs posting a 3.75 ERA. 

Blevins again started the 2013 season in Rockland where he posted a 9-10 record with a 4.24. For the second year in a row he was sent to the Ducks toward the end of the season. 

Blevins pitched a five hit gem, allowing only one run over eight innings in game four of the 2013 Atlantic League series but got a no decision after the Ducks lost in 16-innings.
