Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

The pair of Albuquerque Isotopes join seven other talented minor leaguers on the Topps Triple-A All-Star Team.

Los Angeles Dodgers minor leaguers Alex Castellanos and Jerry Sands were among nine players named to the Topps Triple-A All-Star Team, according to an announcement made by Minor League Baseball and the Topps Company on Monday.

Castellanos, a second baseman for the Albuquerque Isotopes, led Triple-A hitters in OPS with a mark of 1.010 and ranked second with a .590 slugging percentage. The 26-year-old hit .328 on the year, with 17 home runs and 52 RBI for the Isotopes. He was named to the Topps Double-A All-Star team as an outfielder last season, and was acquired by the Dodgers in a trade with the St. Louis Cardinals in July of 2011.

Sands, who was shipped to the Boston Red Sox as a player to be named later in the Adrian Gonzalez deal, hit .296, with 26 home runs and 107 RBI for the Isotopes. The 25-year-old Sands was a 25th round pick of the Dodgers in the 2008 draft.
