LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers infielder Rob Segedin was honored on Thursday, named a 2016 Pacific Coast League All-Star for his strong performance this season for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Segedin, acquired from the Yankees on Jan. 12, made a strong impression with a solid spring training as a non-roster invitee, and has kept it going all year with Oklahoma City, hitting .296/.374/.562 with 16 doubles, 13 home runs, seven triples, 45 RBI and 46 runs scored in 71 games.

He ranks fourth in the PCL in extra-base hits (36), fifth in total bases (146) and is tied for the league lead in triples.

The right-hander has 10 of those extra-base hits, including five home runs, in his last 15 games, hitting .273/.369/.655 during that span.

Segedin has started 45 games at third base this season and 19 more at first base. He has also started one game apiece at second base and shortstop.

The 2016 Triple-A All-Star Game will be held at BB&T Ballpark in Charlotte on Wednesday, July 13, pitting the PCL against the International League. The 4 p.m. PT game will be televised by MLB Network and streamed online through MILBtv.
