Josh Sborz, Andrew Sopko, and Kyle Garlick will represent Rancho Cucamonga in the Single-A California/Carolina League All-Star Game tonight
The LAD High A California League All-Star game is tonight. The game features the all-stars of the California league versus the all-stars of the Carolina league. The LAD have three players representing them tonight.
- Josh Sborz who was just named Single-A California League Pitcher of the Week for his work last week. Sborz was the 74th overall pick in the 2015 First-Year Player Draft out of the University of Virginia.
- Andrew Sopko who has not walked more than two players in any of his last ten starts.
- Kyle Garlick – Garlick was promoted to AA several weeks ago so he won’t be appearing in the game. Though given how much Garlick has struggled in AA, he may want to revisit his greener pastures.
One other minor league note:
Tulsa outfielder Andrew Toles was named the AA Texas League Player of the Week. Toles started the season in the California League but quickly proved to much of a match for the mostly younger competition. Toles initially set Tulsa on fire after his promotion but had struggled until June. Toles is on fire again, and putting himself on the prospect radar. He might actually help the LAD because of his speed if the LAD decide to use a speed man in September. Toles already has twenty two stolen bases this season split between two leagues.
