The Eastern League announced their selections for the 2015 All-Star Team, which is voted on by Eastern League managers, coaches, and media personnel. Only one player is named to the team per position, and Max Moroff has been named as the best second baseman of the league.

According to MiLB’s official announcement, Max Moroff’s strong first impression of Double-A baseball lead him to being named to the team. He is currently batting .298 this season with 24 doubles, five triples, seven home runs, 75 runs scored, 47 RBIs, and 16 stolen bases in 126 games. Moroff is second in the league in hits with 144 hits on the season. His 144 hits so far has broken the Altoona Curve’s franchise record for hits by a switch hitter in a season (142). Moroff also leads the league in runs scored with 75, is second in total bases (199), third in walks (65), fifth in on-base percentage (.378, eighth in batting average (.298), and tenth in doubles (24).

Moroff was the starting second baseman for the Western Division at the 2015 Eastern League All-Star Game, and he was the E.L. Player of the Week from April 20th-26th.

We have written numerous times about Moroff’s improvements this season with his ability to hit the gap and get on base. Recently, the organization began moving Moroff around the infield as to give him more flexibility and added value.
