Baseball America has released their annual list of mid season All-Stars compromised of a balancing between prospect status and production. At this point, it should come as no surprise Peter Alonso was named as an All Star.
Much has been written on this site and elsewhere about just how much Alonso has improved and how well he is performing this season. Overall, that improvement has seen him begin the year in Double-A with a call-up to Triple-A. His combined stats are .290/.422/.538 with 15 doubles, 18 homers, and 67 RBI.
To put in perspective how dominant his season has been, Alonso still ranks fourth in the Eastern League in homers despite playing his last game at that level on June 14th.
With this performance, it should also come as no surprise that a player who began the season unranked is now Baseball America‘s 75th best prospect in all of baseball. As Alonso continues this performance, who knows where he will finish on this list or what further accolades will be thrown his way.
