Three 'Rocks named Carolina League All-Stars
Salvador Perez was named as one of the squad's backup catchers. The 20-year-old backstop began the season as the youngest player in the Carolina League, performing very well against older competition. In 148 at bats this year, Perez is hitting .284/.323/.432 with three home runs and 22 RBIs. An excellent defensive catcher, Perez leads the league in runners caught stealing.
Alex Caldera this season has bounced back nicely from a disappointing 2009 campaign, logging a 6-3 record with a sparkling 2.84 ERA. In 69.2 innings pitched, the 24-year-old right-hander has fanned 68 batters while issuing just 16 walks and holding opponents to a .252 batting average. Caldera ranks third in the Carolina League in victories, innings pitched, and strikeouts.
