Bortnick and Lee Named FSL Postseason All-Stars

The Stone Crab's middle infield combo of Tyler Bortnick and Hak-Ju Lee were reward for their performance this season by being named to the Florida State League Postseason All-Star Team. The combo lead the Stone Crabs in almost all offensive statistics this season.

Bortnick leads the Florida State League with 41 stolen bases, is second in the league in OBP (.423) and runs scored (88) and is fourth in the league in doubles (88). He is the franchise leader in RBI's with 62 and is closing in on the franchise stolen base record as well. Bortnick is now hitting .299 with 32 doubles, 6 triples, 3 homers and 62 RBI's in 124 games for the Stone Crabs this season.

Lee still leads the Stone Crabs in average (.317) and slugging (.442) despite being promoted to Montgomery in early August. He missed the beginning of the season with chicken pox and then took the FSL by storm when he was activated, opening his season with a 14-game hitting streak and leading the league in hitting for much of the season. Lee departed with a franchise high 11 triples.

Both Bortnick and Lee represented the Stone Crabs on the midseason all-star squad as well.

  1. I really want to see Bortnick thrive in AA next year, AA is the biggest test for any prospect. AAA is the final test. I hope Bortnick can develop into a plus bench player or an average starter
