CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. -- The Southern League announced the initial rosters for the 2014 Southern League All-Star Game on Tuesday, and five Chattanooga Lookouts made the North Division team. Chris Reed and Scott Schebler highlight the Dodgers Double-A honorees.

The five Lookouts named to the North Division squad are Reed and fellow starting pitcher Tyson Brummett, Schebler and fellow outfielder Jeremy Hazelbaker, and infielder Darnell Sweeney. The 2014 Southern League All-Star Game will take place on Tuesday, June 17 at AT&T Field in Chattanooga.

Reed was the Dodgers' first-round pick in 2011 out of Stanford, and in his third season with the Lookouts is 3-3 with a 3.18 ERA in 12 starts. The 24-year-old left-hander entered Tuesday leading the Southern League with 75 strikeouts in 70⅔ innings, to go with 29 walks. His 24.8-percent strikeout rate in 2014 is well above his 18.2-percent rate in 2012-13 with Chattanooga.

Schebler, who was named the Branch Rickey Dodgers minor league player of the year in 2013, hit for the cycle on Sunday and is hitting .254/.324/.532 with 11 home runs, nine doubles and seven triples in 55 games.

Sweeney, drafted by the Dodgers in the 13th round in 2012, has split time between second base and shortstop for the Lookouts in 2014. The 23-year-old switch hitter is hitting .324/.413/.471 with 16 doubles in 55 games. Sweeney carried a 12-game hitting streak into Tuesday night's game, hitting .469/.509/.735 (23-for-49) during that span.

Hazelbaker, acquired from the Red Sox in October for Alex Castellanos, hit .285/.354/.462 with seven triples, five doubles, three home runs and 11 steals in 46 games with Chattanooga before getting promoted to Triple-A Albuquerque on May 28.

Brummett, 29, is 4-5 with a 2.38 ERA in 11 starts this season with 50 strikeouts and 17 walks in 64⅓ innings. He was signed as a minor league free agent by the Dodgers in November.
