The Florida State League all-star team was announced today and Jupiter first baseman Logan Morrison (Marlins) earned the league’s most valuable player honors. The 6-foot-2, 215 pound lefty slugger is hitting .332/.402/.497 on the season, leading the league in average and on-base percentage and ranking fourth in slugging.
The Tigers’ top prospect, Lakeland righthander Rick Porcello, heads the group of starting pitchers on the team. With 75 strikeouts over 125 innings, Porcello’s strikeout rate wasn’t jaw dropping, but he gets a lot of groundballs, helping him maintain a 2.66 ERA.
Despite pitching out of the bullpen, Fort Myers righthander Anthony Slama (Twins) ranked among the league’s top 10 in strikeouts, fanning 109 batters over 69 frames. St. Lucie catcher Josh Thole (Mets) put up good numbers for St. Lucie, hitting .301/.384/.430 over 342 at-bats . . . Sarasota third baseman Juan Francisco (Reds) puts up impressive power numbers but strikes out nearly once a game. . . Dunedin skipper Omar Malave was named manager of the year after leading the Jays to a league-best 45-20 record.
