Peacock, Moore Earn Eastern League Honors

The Eastern League has announced its postseason 2011 All-Star team, with RHP Brad Peacock and 1B Tyler Moore making the grade.

Just 13 players are named to the squad, with the eight defensive positions, a DH, a utility player, left- and right-handed starters and a reliever. The lineup is voted on by league managers, sportswriters, broadcasters and other media members.

Moore, who was the 2010 Carolina League MVP, currently leads the Eastern League in HRs (30), RBIs (87), and total bases (265) — clearly making him a candidate, if not a favorite, for the Eastern League MVP in 2011.

Peacock went 10-2 with a 2.01 ERA for Harrisburg prior to his promotion last month to Syracuse, where he currently sports a 4-1 record with a 3.56 ERA. Combined, he has gone 14-3 with a 2.48 ERA and 170 SOs in 141⅔ innings.

Peacock was also named the Eastern League Pitcher of the Year.

  1. Well deserved honors for both Peacock & Moore, but I think Tony Beasley got stiffed on the Manager-of-the-year vote (winner was Sal Fasano – New Hampshire Rock Cats).
