Rancho Cucamonga, CA - The Rancho Cucamonga Quakes are honored to announce that third baseman Ryan Mount and outfielder Noel Cuevas have both been named to the upcoming California-Carolina League All-Star Game, to be played at San Jose Municipal Stadium on Tuesday, June 18th.
Currently on the disabled list with a right foot injury, Mount will not actually play in the game, in order to give his foot more time to recover before the start of the second half. With a league-leading batting average of .342, the Chino native has seven homers and has also knocked in 37 runs, in this, his first year as a Los Angeles Dodgers' farmhand.
Cuevas, who was added to the team just this morning, is having a break-out year. The Puerto Rico native is batting .311 (eighth in the league) with five home runs, 34 RBIs and 16 stolen bases. Cuevas is also tied for the league lead with seven triples.
With league-wide injuries and promotions playing a factor leading up to the game, it's a possibility that the Quakes could have additional players added to the team in the upcoming weeks, as they have several other players who are currently enjoying stand-out seasons. Stay tuned to rcquakes.com for the latest all-star additions.
