    Post MINORS THREAD 8/26: Gosselin (and Hessman!) IL all-stars

    All-Star Utility Player: Phil Gosselin (Gwinnett)
    Gwinnett's Phil Gosselin, has been selected as the International League's top utility player for 2014. The 25-year-old Gosselin, currently with Atlanta, received votes as a second baseman, shortstop, third baseman, outfielder and designated hitter after seeing time at each position this season. Also a mid-season All-Star, he is currently second in the League with a .344 batting average. He is the first Braves farmhand selected as the All-Star Utility Player since Randall Simon of Richmond in 1997.;'
    All-Star Designated Hitter: Mike Hessman (Toledo)
    Mike Hessman returned to the Toledo Mud Hens this season and set the International League's all-time career home run record, surpassing Ollie Carnegie on June 30 with his 259th long ball in the IL. For 2014, the 36-year-old Hessman is second in the League with 28 home runs. He is now a three-time IL Postseason All-Star, becoming just the 12th player in League history to do so. Hessman was also Toledo's most recent third baseman to become an IL Postseason All-Star (2008).

    --------------------
    The Mississippi Braves have won seven straight to grab the barest of margins in their Southern League division. Whether they win it or not is still a question, but they have played near-perfect baseball since the heralded Peraza went on the DL. Maybe it's time the Braves' brass consider Aaron Holbert a worthy addition to the major league staff.
