Tony Delmonico was named to the league's post-season all-star team as the top catcher. Davaris "Dee" Gordon (shortstop) and Russell (outfield) also were amongst the 13 players selected to the honorary team.
Gordon currently leads the league in hits (153), stolen bases (69), triples (11) and is tied with teammate Jaime Pedroza in runs scored (88). The speedy shortstop from Avon Park, FL is tied for first amongst all full-season minor league players in stolen bases, tied for sixth in hits and tied for 13th in runs.
Kyle Russell, Co-MVP
Russell, the University of Texas' all-time home run leader, is the current league leader in home runs (25), total bases (241), extra base hits (65) and slugging percentage (.551). He is tied for the top spot in RBIs (89) with Peoria's Rebel Ridling. He is tied for fifth in all of Minor League Baseball in extra base hits.
Tony Delmonico, All-Star catcher
Delmonico, currently on the disabled list with an injured hand, is batting .285 with nine home runs in 43 RBIs. A former infielder, Delmonico is in his first season as a catcher.
All selections were made as a result of voting by the league's managers. Managers were not permitted to select players from their own teams.
Gordon becomes the second Loons player named Prospect of the Year, joining current Dodgers left-handed pitcher Clayton Kershaw who took the honor in 2007.
