Midwest League Postseason All-Stars announced

Quad Cities River Bandits DH Colin Walsh is among those named 2012 Midwest League Postseason All-Stars.

After the Midwest League postseason awards were announced yesterday, I wrote about the two major winners, Beloit Snappers 3B Miguel Sano (Prospect of the Year) and former Lansing Lugnuts OF Kevin Pillar (Most Valuable Player), as well as Lugnuts skipper John Tamargo, Jr. (Manager of the Year). You can read that post here.

Of course, Sano and Pillar also were named to the Midwest League Postseason All-Star Team. Other members of the team (and their 2012 MWL statistics as of this morning) are:

Fort Wayne TinCaps C Austin Hedges (.275, 10 HR, 51 RBI, 14 SB, .988 fielding percentage in 93 games)

Bowling Green Hot Rods 1B Cameron Seitzer (.304, 4 HR, 50 RBI in 114 games)

Bowling Green Hot Rods 2B Ryan Brett* (.285, 6 HR, 35 RBI, 48 SB in 100 games)

* Ryan Brett is one of four Bowling Green Hot Rods players recently suspended for 50 games after testing positive for methamphetamine and an amphetamine. Brett’s agent released a statement asserting that his client’s positive test was a result of taking adderall, a common form of medication for attention deficit disorder, and that Brett believed he was taking a energy pill.
