Albuquerque Isotopes outfielder Noel Cuevas has been named to the PCL All-Star Team, with the contest to be hosted at Cheney Stadium in Tacoma, Wash. on Wednesday, July 12. The game will be broadcasted live on MLB Network.

Cuevas, 24, currently ranks eighth in the Pacific Coast League with a .328 batting average (87-for-265), while his eight triples are tied for most in Triple-A baseball. At the time of his selection, Cuevas leads the Isotopes in hits (87) and total bases (138).

This selection marks Cuevas' second All-Star appearance, previously being named a 2013 California League All-Star while with the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes (High-A).

A Camuy, Puerto Rico native, Cuevas was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 21st round of the 2010 first-year player draft. The Rockies acquired Cuevas on December 16, 2014 as the player to be named later in the Juan Nicasio trade.
