Former Kings Seeing Stars

feliz asg.jpgI should have put this out yesterday, but you probably already know anyways.  Former LumberKings’ second-baseman Ian Kinsler (’04) and right-hander Neftali Feliz (’08) are American League All-Stars.  Both were named amongst five Texas Rangers to play in the game at Angels Stadium in Anaheim coming up on July 13.

Kinsler is a second-time All-Star, replacing Boston’s Dustin Pedroia on the roster.  Feliz, who was an active LumberKing through early July three seasons ago is a first-time All-Star.  I’m especially excited about Feliz going, as he is the first player from a team I’ve covered to be named an All-Star.

In other less-exciting but still exciting none-the-less news, word has it that right-hander Blake Beavan (’08) has been promoted to triple-A Oklahoma City.  Center-fielder Engel Beltre (’08) had just joined double-A Frisco, so they had apparently reached the “08 LumberKings” quota.

It’s good to be a former member of that 2008 club right now.
