Florida State League All-Star Game june 14
Bradley, Wagner, Poppe and Garfield Chosen By North Division Managers, Beat Writers and Official Scorers
BREVARD COUNTY • VIERA, FLORIDA – The Florida State League announced on Tuesday that starting pitchers Jed Bradley and Tyler Wagner, relief pitcher Tanner Poppe and catcher Cameron Garfield were selected from the Brevard County Manatees to represent the North Division in the 2014 Florida State League All-Star Game at McKechnie Field in Bradenton on June 14.
Both Bradley and Poppe have been recently promoted to Double-A Huntsville and therefore will not be able to play in the game.
BOB BRADLEY went 5-2 with a 2.98 earned run average in 10 starts with the ‘Tees. He left Brevard County with a 1.06 WHIP and still ranks sixth in the FSL with 53 strikeouts. Bradley was twice named the Florida State League Pitcher of the Week before his promotion and threw nine shutout innings in a 1-0, 11-inning Brevard County loss at Palm Beach on May 20. Bradley was drafted by the Brewers in the first round of the 2011 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft out of Georgia Tech University.
TYLER WAGNER, who will take Bradley’s spot on the North Division roster, is currently sixth in the league with a 1.94 ERA. He ranks fourth in the FSL with 65 innings pitched and has gone at least five innings in all of 11 of his starts thus far with the Manatees. Six of Wagner’s 11 starts have been quality starts and he has not allowed more than three earned runs in any of his 11 outings in 2014. Wagner was drafted by the Brewers in the fourth round of the 2012 MLB First-Year Player Draft out of the University of Utah.
TANNER POPPE went 0-1 with a 2.25 ERA in 12 appearances with Brevard. He was a perfect 9-for-9 in save opportunities with the ‘Tees and began the season with an 11.1 scoreless innings streak before giving up his first run of the year. His nine saves with the Manatees still ranks him third in the Florida State League. Poppe was drafted by the Brewers in the 31st round of the 2013 MLB First-Year Player Draft out of the University of Kansas.
CAMERON GARFIELD has been named a FSL Mid-Season All-Star for the second consecutive year, as he also represented the Manatees in last year’s All-Star Game in Dunedin. He currently ranks second on the ‘Tees with 11 doubles and third on the team with 21 RBI. He also recorded a ten-game hitting streak from April 27-May 10. Garfield was drafted by the Brewers in the second round of the 2009 MLB First-Year Player Draft by the Brewers out of Murrieta Valley (Calif.) High School.
