Corner infielder Zach Green, outfielder Jan Hernandez, catcher Deivi Grullon and relief pitcher Edgar Garcia have all been named to the Eastern Division roster. The game is slated to take place at Trenton's ARM & HAMMER Park on Wednesday, July 11th at 7PM.
Hernandez was the Phils' 3rd round draft pick in 2013. In 63 games this season, the 23-year-old righty hitter has notched a .286 average with seven homers, 35 RBI and five stolen bases.
Grullon, a 22-year-old Dominican backstop, has come into his own this year, displaying plenty of progress. In 48 games, the right-handed batter is hitting .274 with 11 home runs and 31 RBI.
Garcia, a right-handed Dominican native, has been rock solid this year for Reading. Through 28 appearances, he has posted a 5-2 record with five saves, a 2.84 ERA and a .176 batting average against.
The Eastern division team will be coached by host Trenton Thunder manager Jay Bell and his staff.
Additionally, it was announced this week that a trio of Lehigh Valley IronPig will represent the Phillies organization in the Triple-A All-Star Game. The 31st annual exhibition will also take place on Wednesday, July 11th in Columbus, OH at Huntington Park.
Lefty pitcher Cole Irvin, outfielder Joey Meneses and righty pitcher Enyel De Los Santos were selected to the International League All-Star team. Meneses received the most fan votes overall and De Los Santos was also voted in as a starter.
De Los Santos, who was acquired last off-season from San Diego in a trade for Freddy Galvis, leads the IL in ERA with a 1.73 mark through 14 starts. The 22-year-old Dominican commands four pitches that he throws in any count and that has proved very successful.
