The Florida State League announced their End-of-Season All-Stars on Monday afternoon and three players from the Bradenton Marauders made the squad. Shortstop Cole Tucker, outfielder Logan Hill and pitcher Pedro Vasquez all received recognition for being the best at their position in the league.
Both Tucker and Hill were promoted to Altoona last month, but they were able to compile strong stats in the FSL before they left. Tucker hit .285/.364/.426 in 68 games, while playing solid defense at shortstop and leading the league with 36 stolen bases. He is still four ahead of the player with the second most steals in the league, despite missing three weeks with a thumb injury and being promoted to Altoona on July 20th.
Hill is still tied for the FSL league lead in homers with 16, even though he was promoted on June 30th. He hit .266/.351/.513 in 71 games with the Marauders. His season was cut short by a broken hand on July 27th and he’s currently down at Pirate City rehabbing the injury, but not ready for any type of game action.
Vasquez is the only one of the group still with Bradenton. He has one more start left this season. The 21-year-old right-hander put up a 3.37 ERA in 133.2 innings so far, with 105 strikeouts and a 1.15 WHIP. He ranks third in the league in ERA, tenth in strikeouts and first in WHIP.
