The accolades keep coming for the Washington Nationals minor-leaguers, as six farmhands (five current and one former) were named by Baseball America in its roundup of All-Star Teams.

Brad Peacock was named to the first team of the 2011 Minor-League All-Star Team as one of the five starting pitchers, while Bryce Harper was named to the second team as one of three outfielders. Unlike the league awards, this a higher honor because the pool was all of minor-league baseball.

At the classification level (AAA, AA, Hi-A, etc.) the following Nationals were named:

Tommy Milone, SP

Peacock, SP

Jeff Kobernus, 2B

Harper, OF
Chris Manno, RP*
*Manno was traded along with Bill Rhinehart for Jonny Gomes to Cincinnati

Short-Season A
Matt Skole, 3B

  1. Wow Kobernus has really come on this year!

  2. There’s an article on Insidenova with some good stuff on the prospects and some continuing talk about the new phantom P-Nats stadium. … Hmmmm, what happened to that phantom, Silber-announced press conference last summer? The article in BA on that subject was, er, off .

  3. Oh Manno….how we miss you! I’ll put up $5 that he’ll be in the bigs in 2 years or less. 🙂

  4. More post-season honors. Truly a sign that the investment in the draft is paying off, and the overall franchise is improving.

  5. manno manno manno hey guys if you have time the reds run a blog just lke ours and the guy who moderates it is a great guy by the name of Doug , He likes Manno but does not believe he is a top prospect. I think he needs some advise. Go on the blog and put your words to work
    Manno actually pitched better in Bakersfield then he did in H town (hard to believe)

  6. Is the Instructional League going on now? If not when will it begin?
