Brooklyn Cyclones To Send 3 To The NYPL All-Star Game

The NYPL All-Star rosters were announced Friday, and (as of now) the Brooklyn Cyclones will be sending 3 players to the August 18th game, as reported by Brooklyn Baseball Banter.

            The Brooklyn Cyclones are in the NYPL playoffs hunt once again, sitting just a half game back of the rival Staten Island Yankees in the McNamara division of the NYPL, and a half game back of the Lowell Spinners for the one wild card spot. The team has found success behind the top pitching staff in the league, which boasts a team ERA of 2.93, while second place Hudson Valley is at 3.15. While the 2015 Cyclones lack the household name prospects that the 2014 Cyclones had (like Michael Conforto, Amed Rosario, Marcos Molina, and Jhoan Urena), they still have some interesting talent on the team, and three of those players were rewarded for their strong starts with All-Star selections: Gaby Almonte, Alex Palsha, and Vinny Siena.
            Gaby Almonte will be 23 when the All-Star game takes place in two weeks, and he’s been a prospect with the Mets system since 2011. He first came stateside in 2013, and has spent the past two seasons between the GCL and Kingsport. His first start of the year was spoiled by one bad inning, but then he went on an impressive run of 7 starts: 42.2 IP, 1.27 ERA, 36 H, 28 K: 8 BB, with a .567 OPS allowed. His run hit a huge roadblock in his most recent start, when he allowed 9 ER over 3+ IP against Lowell.
            Alex Palsha was the Mets 27th round pick from 2014, and he’s yet to allow a run this season as the Cyclones closer, with 10 saves during his 14 appearances. In total, he’s thrown 16.2 IP this year, with 7 hits allowed, 20 K: 4 BB (58 batters faced), and a .403 OPS allowed.
            Vinny Siena was the Mets 14th round pick from this season, and he got off to a hot start with the Cyclones, hitting .352/.417/.380 over his first 28 games. He’s cooled off since then, going 11-55 with just 2 doubles over his last 15 games, but he’s probably just wearing down some after a long Junior season with UConn.

            It’s still possible that there are more Cyclones added to the team, so check back for updates as the game draws closer.
