MIDLAND, Mich. -- The Class-A Great Lakes Loons will be represented by three players at the Midwest League All-Star Game, the league announced on Tuesday. Outfielder Joey Curletta, catcher Kyle Farmer and relief pitcher Mark Pope were named to the Eastern Division team.
The Midwest League All-Star Game will be played on June 17 at Fifth Third Ballpark in Comstock, Mich., home of the West Michigan Whitecaps, a Tigers affiliate.
Curletta, drafted in the sixth round in 2012, is hitting .311/.355/.413 with 15 doubles and two home runs in 56 games. The 20-year-old right-hander has had hitting streaks of 10, nine, eight and another eight games already this season.
