The International League's preliminary All-Star roster includes former University of Kentucky standout Taylor Rogers.
Rogers, a Minnesota Twins prospect, pitched for the Cats from 2010 to 2012.
He is 7-4 with a 2.96 ERA this season for the Rochester Red Wings. He has 71 strikeouts in 1031⁄3 innings.
This is his first season in Triple-A. He was 11-6 with a 3.29 ERA in 2014 for New Britain, the Twins' Double-A squad. In four minor league seasons, he is 33-20 with a 2.94 ERA.
The International All-Stars will take on the Pacific Coast League's top players in Triple-A All-Star Game on July 15 in Omaha, Neb.
Another feat for Reed
Former UK star AJ Reed added another feat to his stellar résumé this season for the Lancaster JetHawks, the Houston Astros' Class A Advanced affiliate.
Reed started a triple play and hit his 20th home run of the season in his team's 8-7 loss to Inland Empire on Wednesday night.
MiLB.com reported that with the bases loaded in the second inning and the JetHawks trailing 2-0, Reed snagged a line drive off the bat of Angel Rosa for the first out. Reed stepped on first to double off Stephen McGee and fired the ball to shortstop Jack Mayfield at second to get Caleb Adams for the third out.
"It was bases loaded and I was playing in," Reed told MiLB.com. "(Rosa) sent me a line drive, so I stepped on first and threw to second. When I caught it, I glanced at second and the runner on second was going towards third and he had a pretty big lead, I knew if I got to first quick enough and threw it I could get him out."
Reed's memorable season so far includes hitting for the cycle on June 16 and a three-homer game on May 6. He leads the California League in home runs and RBI (71), and he's second in batting at .332 despite a rough start to the season. He hit .208 in 20 games in April.
"Except for the first month, it's been a pretty good season so far," Reed told MiLB.com. "I just got to keep doing what I've been doing the last two months. Keep the average up, still hitting for power and keep driving guys in."
