Dustan Kyle Mohr (born June 19, 1976 in Hattiesburg, Mississippi) is a former Major League Baseball outfielder who currently plays for the independent Long Island Ducks of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball. He bats and throws right-handed.

Mohr attended the University of Alabama and was drafted by the Cleveland Indians in the ninth round of the 1997 draft. He signed with the Minnesota Twins as a free agent on April 1, 2000. Starting midway through the 2001 season, the Twins used a platoon of Mohr and Bobby Kielty in right field, causing fans to dub the duo "Dusty Kielmohr". This platoon persisted on and off for two years.

After four seasons in the Twins organization, Mohr was traded to the San Francisco Giants before the 2004 season. Mohr struggled during the first few months before catching fire in early June. His aggressive defense and clutch hitting made him a favorite among Giants fans.

The Giants closed in on the division leading Los Angeles Dodgers in the last month of the season. In the second to last series of the season, against the San Diego Padres, Mohr was injured as he tracked down a foul ball in right field. He tripped over the bullpen mound as the ball tailed towards the stands. He held on to the ball, and the Padres scored the game's winning run. He did not play during the season's final series against the Dodgers.

As a member of the Boston Red Sox, Dustan Mohr filled in occasionally in outfield, either replacing Trot Nixon or Coco Crisp. While Crisp was out, Mohr had a spot on the major league roster, but he struggled with the big league club hitting: .175 with 2 home runs and 3 RBI. His stint with the Red Sox was short as Mohr was demoted to the Pawtucket Red Sox where he continued to struggle at the plate. He finished the 2006 season as a member of the Detroit Tigers playing for their Triple-A affiliate, the Toledo Mud Hens.

In 2007, Mohr signed a minor league contract with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, and was called up on June 23, but was released a month later [1].

Mohr signed with the Wichita Wingnuts of the American Association for the 2008 season.,[1] but signed with the Colorado Rockies on May 27, 2008. On June 23, the Rockies released Mohr. In January 2009, he re-signed with the Wingnuts.

He is now with the Long Island Ducks of the Atlantic League.


He is married to the former Denise Johnson.
