The 30-man roster and staff for the Triple-A All Star Game has been released, which includes a league high five Gwinnett Braves.
The group is led by recently announced 2011 MLB XM All-Star Futures Game representative RHP Julio Teheran. Joining him in representing the G-Braves are DH Stefan Gartrell, 1B Mauro Gomez, OF Jose Constanza, and Trainer Mike Graus.
Last year Teheran was the youngest International League All Star and this year was one of two Gwinnett players elected by fans/managers/media. The other, Gartrell is also first time IL All Star.
Constanza is the only member of the G-Braves contingent to be a multiple time All Star. He made the team last year as a member of the Columbus Clippers.
The All Star game, like Major League Baseball, will determine the Home team for the Triple-A Championship at season’s end.
The IL will take on the Pacific Coast League in the Triple-A All-Star Game, held in Salt Lake City on July 13 at 9 p.m.
