On Saturday, however, Fuld learned that he'd be at the All-Star festivities after all. According to Derek Ingram, voice of the Daytona Cubs and media relations director for the team, the 24-year-old Fuld will take Jupiter OF Brett Carroll's spot on the league's all-star roster.
Through 59 games this season, Fuld is batting .335 with three home runs, 11 doubles, five triples and 30 RBIs. He has walked 26 times and struck out 36 in 242 at-bats. The Cubs' leadoff hitter reached base in every game for the entire month of May as part of a 33-game consecutive on base streak.
He also had a 17-game hitting streak from May 9-28, which is still the longest hit streak of the season for any player in the FSL. This season, Fuld is 16-for-19 in stolen bases.
A former college standout at Stanford, Fuld was drafted in consecutive seasons by the Cubs in 2003 and 2004.
