My Pirates Minor League All-Stars

I have decided to take the best of the Pirate's minors, and make an All-Star team from all minor teams in the system.

C: Kris Watts he catches in single A, Lynchburg, and is hitting .320 with 4 HR, 32 RBI, and 41Runs.

1B: Steve Pearce of AAA, it was a toss up between him and Calvin Anderson from Low A, West Virgina, Pearce hit .287 with 12 HR, 52 RBI, and 36 Runs.

2B: Ray Chang is currently in AA, but has been mostly in A this year. He has hit .302 with 32 RBI, 25 Runs, but has not hit a home run.

3B: Pedro Alvarez, I know he's a rookie and he doesn't hit for a good average, but he can kill the ball. He has played in both AA and A, with a combined average of .252. He has crushed 19 HR, 65 RBI, 52 Runs, and an On Base Percentage of .333.

SS: Chase d'Arnaud, started off in Low-A West Virginia, but has been up in A for 19 games. He has a combined average of .288 with 5 HR, 46 RBI, 45 Runs, and is a speed demon. He has hit 20 doubles, 5 triples, and has stolen 20 bases.

LF: Quincy Latimore from Low-A West Virginia has been hitting very well. He is hitting a decent .264 with 7 HR, 42 RBI, 43 Runs, and a exceptional 7 triples.

CF: Robbie Grossman, he is one that i am keeping my eye on. He is 19 and is currently on Low-A, where he is hitting .269 with 4 HR, 33 RBI, 56 Runs, and an outstanding 24 stolen bases.

RF: Miles Durham, currently in AA he was in A for most of this season. He is hitting a combined average of .291 with 8 HR, 49 RBI, 46 Runs, and 25 doubles.

SP: Rudy Owens, this 21 year old is pitching incredibly in Low-A. He is 10-1 through 18 starts, with a 1.75 ERA! That is outstanding numbers, not to mention batters are only hitting .201 against him. He has struck out 87 batters through 97.2 innings, and he has only walked 13 batters. Those are impressing numbers, and he deserves a call up to Lynchburg.

RP: Mike Koplove, he was aquired from the Iron Pigs and has been an outstanding reliever. He has a combined 9 holds and 7 saves. He has a combined record of 3-4 with 1.37 ERA, plus batters are only hitting .188 against him.

CP: R.J. Rodriguez, another toss up as Chris Bootcheck has pitched well in AAA. Rodriguez is in A, Lynchburg, and has 17 saves and only 1 blown save. He has a record of 6-2, with an ERA of 2.62, and 32 K's through 34.1 innings.
