Makes the Eastern League All Star Team:[color]
The Eastern League announced the 2011 Eastern League All-Stars Wednesday afternoon. The Harrisburg Senators have five representatives heading to New Hampshire on July 13 for the Eastern League All-Star Game. Pitchers Brad Pea**** and Erik Arnesen were selected along with first baseman Tyler Moore, and outfielders Bill Rhinehart and Archie Gilbert.
Tyler Moore leads the team with 14 homeruns, 20 doubles, and 44 RBIs. He is tied for the team-lead in runs (40), second in hits (75), and tied for second in triples (4). In mid-April, Moore had a 10-game hitting streak raising his average 163 points. He earned EL Player of the Week at the end of May. Entering the season, Baseball America ranked him as the 24th best prospect in the Nats system. The 24-year old was a 16th round selection in the 2008 draft by the Washington Nationals.
Power still there, but after a .307 /.352 /.604 May, fell to a .212/ .257 / .442 June. Some symmetry in his monthly OPS - .698 in April, .699 in June, surrounding .956 in May.
