The Southern League today announced its 2012 South Division All-Star Team, highlighted by a trio of Montgomery Biscuits: RHP Shane Dyer, UTIL IF Omar Luna, and DH Kyeong Kang.
Dyer, promoted to triple-A Durham near the end of May, paced the Biscuits starting staff over the season's first two months. After struggling with the Biscuits in 2011, Dyer posted a 4-2 record with a 2.03 ERA in his time in Montgomery in 2012. Because of his promotion, he will not participate in the All-Star Game.
Kang, an outfielder and designated hitter for the Biscuits, leads the team with 9 home runs, and is a Southern League All-Star despite a recent cold stretch. After setting several offensive career-bests while with the Biscuits in 2011, he overcame a 3-26 start to help earn the All-Star honors.
There have now been 37 Biscuits in franchise history named Mid-Season All-Stars.
The Mississippi Braves led the South Division with seven selections. The rosters are voted on by the league's managers, GMs, radio broadcasters, and print media.
The 2012 Southern League All-Star Game will be played Tuesday, June 19th, at Smokies Park in Kodak, TN.
