Rosters for the 2014 New York-Penn League All-Star team were announced this week and will include two Auburn Doubledays — Jose “Orange” Marmolejos-Diaz and Mario Sanchez.

Diaz was selected as a first baseman and has posted a line of .266/.344/.373 with one home run and 24RBI in 47 games. He’s a 21-y.o. from the Dominican Republic in his fourth professional season, having spent last year in the GCL and his first two seasons in the DSL.

Sanchez is a 19-y.o. Venezuelan who skipped the GCL after spending the 2012 and 2013 campaigns in the D.R. This season, his third, he’s 5-0 with three saves in 13 relief appearances. Over 28⅓ innings he’s allowed 12 runs (eight earned) on 22 hits (one HR) with eight walks and 22 strikeouts for a 2.54/3.38/1.06 line.

Brooklyn is the host of the 10th annual exhibition, which will pit players from the American League against players from the National League on Tuesday, August 19th.

  4. Let me be the first member of this community to let you know that Michael “BATMAN” Taylor will be fighting evil and gunning down evildoers from centerfield for you Washington Nationals. I told the kid in Spring Training to go out there and win the Eastern League MVP, apparent he had other plans. Congratulations, Michael Taylor and I look forward to reading Luke’s announcement on this marvelous news. I’ll be attending tonight’s game, and I’ll be attending as many additional home games as I can squeeze into my busy schedule while my favorite prospect in my history as a fan has an opportunity to justify a permanent stay in MLB as a defensive wiz during the pennant race and Denard Span’s replacement down the road. That slump has never come, and he’s shocked the world and earned his opportunity. Got to see what Sickels says about him next.
