AlBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Dodgers minor league outfielder Joc Pederson, either the club's top or second-best prospect depending on your ranker of choice, was elected by fans to represent the Isotopes on the Pacific Coast League team in the 2014 Triple-A All-Star Game.

The Triple-A All-Star Game will pit the PCL against the International League, and will be played on Wednesday, July 16 in Durham, N.C.

Pederson is currently on the disabled list with a mild shoulder separation suffered on June 25, but is close to returning to action for Albuquerque. The 22-year-old center fielder is hitting .319/.437/.568 with 17 home runs, 20 stolen bases, 58 runs, 42 RBI and 57 walks in 74 games.

He leads the PCL in on-base percentage and OPS, is tied for first in walks, second in runs scored, and is third in slugging percentage.

Pederson is the only Isotopes player named an All-Star, but he will be joined in Durham by pitching coach Glenn Dishman.
