4 Biscuits picked for All-Star Game

Pitchers Matt Gorgen, Jeremy Hall and Alex Torres and second baseman Drew Anderson have been named to the Sotuhern League's South Division All-Star team. The game is July 12 in Huntsville.

Gorgen has a 1.59 ERA and is among the league leaders with 14 saves. He's allowed 22 hits in 34 innings. Hall is 4-4 with a 3.01 ERA and had a 35-inning scoreless streak this season. Torres leads the Biscuits in victories. He's 7-3 with a 2.61 ERA. Anderson has a .293 average in 54 games this season.

Pitcher Darin Downs was also voted to the team, but won't play since he's been promoted to Triple-A Durham.

(Reminder: This roster will change as players are promoted -- and they will be. Heck, the North Division roster released Tuesday has already been amended. I won't be listing every change as they happen.)

According to the Southern League, Stanton and Morel weren't eligible in the voting because they weren't on a Southern League roster as of June 11. I would have voted for both.

Drew Anderson made the Allstar Team as second baseman. That's great, he's finally getting the recognition he deserves. Good thing he didn't need your vote to make it in!!
