Kevin Newman and Kevin Kramer Named International League Season All-Stars

The International League named their season All-Stars on Tuesday afternoon and two players from the Indianapolis Indians made the team. The double play combo of Kevin Newman and Kevin Kramer were selected as the top players at their positions.

Newman, who is in the majors right now, hit .302/.350/.407 in 109 games, with 30 doubles, 74 runs scored and he was 28-for-39 in stolen bases. He also committed just six errors at 83 games at shortstop. Newman still leads the league in stolen bases.

Kramer is hitting .303/.359/.480 in 123 games, with 32 doubles, 14 homers and 13 stolen bases. He was named as the top second baseman, but he has also played a total of 34 games split between shortstop and third base.

The two of them currently rank 3/4 in the IL in batting average, while Kramer is fourth in OPS and third in slugging. They were also back-to-back in our updated top 50 prospect guide, with Kramer rated 7th and Newman 8th. They have both moved up one spot since that book was released due to the departure of Shane Baz.
