The Pittsburgh Pirates will have three of their prospects in the Eastern League All-Star game, as Ramon Cabrera, Brandon Cumpton, and Brock Holt have all been named to the team.
Cabrera is currently hitting for a .241/.302/.313 line in 195 at-bats. His selection is somewhat of a surprise considering his stat line.
There’s not much of a surprise with Cumpton. The right-hander has made 14 starts, putting up a 3.43 ERA in 86.2 innings, along with a 55:23 K/BB ratio. Cumpton leads Altoona in innings, strikeouts, and his ERA is the highest among starters.
Brock Holt has put up a good season at the plate, hitting for a .316/.377/.426 line in 256 at-bats. He’s been on fire in June, hitting for a .365/.434/.471 line in 85 at-bats. Holt was named the MVP of last year’s Eastern League All-Star Game.
The contest will take place on July 11th.
