Donald Lutz is a left handed hitting outfielder for the Canberra Cavalry. He is a dual citizen of the USA and Germany. Lutz was 0 for 12 with two walks in Bundesliga's first division in 2007, playing for the Regensburg Legionäre. In the second division, he led with a .506 average, drove in 39 runs and hit six home runs in 24 games. He was signed by the Cincinnati Reds in the fall of 2007. Lutz was added to the German national team for the 2008 Final Olympic Qualification Tournament. He hit .250/.318/.400 as one of their three top hitters (along with his brother); he tied for the team lead in both runs (2) and RBI (2) while playing primarily right field. He singled in Dominik Wulf with the winning run against South Africa. He hit a solo homer off of Min-han Son for Germany's only run against South Korea.

Lutz made his US debut on June 20, singling in his only at-bat against the GCL Red Sox. He started his stateside career 5 for 9. He hit .250/.317/.361 for the season, posting an OPS about league average. He played primarily 1B and DH though he saw a little time in left field.

In the 2008 European Under-21 championship, Lutz made the All-Star outfield, hitting .320/.346/.320. Donald started 2009 slowly for the GCL Reds, batting .169/.246/.305 before breaking his wrist in late July, ending his season. He missed the 2009 Baseball World Cup as well.
