Five Dodgers Prospects Named To Southern League All-Star Team

Five Dodgers prospects have been named to the Southern League All-Star team. Named to the Northern Division squad for the game in Hunstville, Alabama on July 12 will be the following from the Double A Chattanooga Lookouts:

SS Dee Gordon
RP Kenley Jansen
OF Trayvon Robinson
3B Corey Smith
RP Jesus Castillo

Gordon is also scheduled to play in the Futures Game in Anaheim on Sunday, July 11, but will play in the Southern League All-Star game the following day if his travel schedule allows.

The inclusion of Jansen is remarkable, considering that he is less than a year removed from being converted from catcher to pitcher, and he has only been in Double A since May 15. Castillo was promoted to Triple A Albuquerque, and will not participate in the game.
