Nunez, Herrera Named Gulf Coast All-Stars

Two more Dodgers have been added to the post-season honor roll with the selection of righthander Jhonny Nunez and second baseman Elian Herrera to the Gulf Coast League all-star team.

It was quite a year for Nunez who led the league with six victories while not losing a game, was third in ERA with a 1.58 mark and third in strikeouts, picking up 56 in a league-high 57 innings. He wound up being traded to the Devil Rays for Marlon Anderson.

Herrera may well have won the league batting title with his .327 average but didn't have enough plate appearances to qualify. He hit one home run and drove in 17 while playing steadily in the field for the most part.

Other Dodger minor leaguers, whose post-season honors were previously announced, included-

Pacific Coast League: Las Vegas, James Loney, 1b.

Southern League: Jacksonville: Spike Lundberg, Pitcher of the Year; Chin-Lung Hu, ss, Craig Brazell, DH

Florida State League: Vero Beach: Blake DeWitt, 2b.

South Atlantic League: Columbus-none.

Pioneer League: Ogden: Josh Bell, 3b.
