Tampa, Fla. - The Florida State League announced today the addition of RHP Andrew Schwaab to the 2017 FSL North Division All-Star Roster. Schwaab fills an opening left after the promotion of RHP Dillon McNamara to Double-A Trenton on Tuesday.
Schwaab joins INF/OF Jorge Mateo , OF Tito Polo and RHPs Zack Littell and Jose Mesa to represent the Tampa Yankees. Like McNamara, LHP Josh Rogers and RHP Cody Carroll were also originally named All-Stars, but were replaced by Littell and Mesa after earning promotions to Double-A Trenton.
Through his first 15 relief appearances, Schwaab is 3-1 with one save and a 4.98 ERA (21.2IP, 24H, 12ER, 6BB, 22K). The 24-year-old is a Mid-Season All-Star selection for the second-straight year after representing the Single-A Charleston RiverDogs in the 2016 South Atlantic League All-Star Game. The Yankees signed Schwaab as a non-drafted free agent on 6/16/15 after he pitched collegiately at the University of Missouri.
The 56th FSL All-Star Game will be played at Publix Field at Joker Marchant Stadium, the home of the Lakeland Flying Tigers, on Saturday, June 17, 2017 at 7:00 p.m.
