California League Announces 2018 All-Star Rosters

The star power in Lake Elsinore’s rotation has been one of the California League’s top storylines in the first half of the season.

That crux of that loaded rotation will get a chance to shine in front of its biggest audience yet next week.

The California League all-star rosters were announced Tuesday and feature three starters from Lake Elsinore, the high Class A affiliate of the Padres. Storm pitchers Chris Paddack (3-1, 1.93), Reggie Lawson (4-2, 2.84) and Adrian Morejon (4-3, 3.66) headline the South squad, and will face a potent North lineup that includes Modesto’s Kyle Lewis and Evan White, the Mariners' top two prospects, and rising D-backs catching prospect Daulton Varsho from Visalia.

Lake Elsinore outfielder Buddy Reed, who leads the league in hitting, headlines a prospect-laden South lineup that includes Storm teammate Hudson Potts, Inland Empire second baseman Jahmai Jones, Rancho Cucamonga shortstop Gavin Lux and Lancaster third baseman Colton Welker. They will be tasked with taking on a North pitching staff headlined by Modesto righthander Darren McCaughan (4-4, 1.66) and league ERA leader Emilio Vargas (5-1, 1.13) from Visalia.

The 2018 California League All-Star Game will take place Tuesday, June 19 at Lancaster.
