Down On The Farm: A's Organizational All-Star Team

Christian Petersen

With the California League and the Midwest League both having just had their All-Star breaks and all the minor league affiliates right around the halfway points of their seasons, it's a good time to take a step back and determine who the true standouts in the A's system have been in the first half of 2013. And with that in mind, I named the A's Mid-Season Organizational All-Star Team on my Athletics Farm blog this week, and I thought all you A's Nation followers would want to weigh in on it here too!

Below you'll find the starting players at each position for Triple-A Sacramento, Double-A Midland, High-A Stockton, and Class-A Beloit. Offensive starters were selected from the players who had the most games played at each position for each team, with notable players not leading in games played at a particular position listed in the designated hitter category. Starting pitchers for each club were determined purely on performance, while closers were selected from each team's saves leader.

The statistics below are complete through the end of the California League and Midwest League All-Star breaks at the end of last Wednesday night's games. Ryan Ortiz, David Freitas, Tyler Ladendorf and Kyler Newby have all had brief stints with Sacramento this season, but only the statistics for their primary teams are included below.

Below the list of contenders, you'll find my selection of Organizational All-Stars at each position. The winners were determined purely on performance, not potential. Remember, we're not selecting the top prospects here, we're choosing the top performers on the field so far this season. So take a good look at the candidates for yourself and feel free to chime in with your own thoughts and selections!
