Infielder Phil Gosselin and reliever Juan Jaime have been selected to represent the Gwinnett Braves in the 27th Annual Triple-A All-Star Game, set to take place on Wednesday, July 16 in Durham, NC. It is the first career minor league All-Star Game selection for both players.
Gosselin and Jaime were 2 of 17 players selected by the International League office to represent the league in the annual game with the Pacific Coast League at Durham Bulls Athletic Park. The game will be broadcast live from DBAP on MLB Network, the American Forces Network, and the Triple-A All-Star Game Radio Network beginning at 7:00 PM ET.
Gosselin, a right-handed hitting second baseman, is in the midst of an impressive sophomore campaign with Gwinnett. The 25-year old has tallied 105 hits, including 22 doubles, three triples and five homeruns, on his way to a .322 batting average-good for third in the league. Gosselin is also among the IL leaders in hits (2nd), doubles (T-5th), total bases (148, T-5th), and runs scored (48, T-6th).
Jaime, a right-handed reliever, is having an outstanding Triple-A debut with Gwinnett this season, going 1-0 with a 2.10 ERA in 30.0 innings pitched while recording 14 saves. The soon to be 27-year old (August 2) also made his Major League debut this season, going 0-0 with a 2.25 ERA (1 ER in 4.0 IP) in four outings with the Atlanta Braves from June 20-26.
