The 2012 Triple-A All-Star Game is scheduled for Wednesday, July 11 at the home of the Bisons’ in Buffalo, New York. First pitch is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. ET between the IL All-Stars and the PCL All-Stars. The game will be televised live on the MLB Network.
Currently, two of your G-Braves are in contention for an All-Star bid. Ernesto Mejia is 5th among Triple-A first basemen, as the G-Brave slugger is leading Gwinnett in most offensive categories, including a team-high .317 batting average. Julio Teheran is 9th among starting pitchers and is back in Gwinnett after making a spot-start for the Atlanta Braves on Sunday. Rest assured, Teheran is primed to make his second straight Triple-A all-star game.
Other G-Braves that should be considered for an All-Star bid are outfielders Jose Constanza, Luis Durango and Stefan Gartrell, utility man Christian Marrero and catcher Jose Yepez. Meanwhile, the pitchers that deserve consideration are starters Todd Redmond and Yohan Flande, relievers Cory Gearrin, Jaye Chapman, Buddy Carlyle, Jose Lugo, Adam Russell and Dusty Hughes.
