UNDATED (Indiana's NewsCenter) TinCaps closer Matt Stites and Manager Jose Valentin have been honored by Baseball America, in its All-Star teams for each minor league classification.
Stites was selected as the Low-A All-Star relief pitcher, and Valentin was named the Low-A Manager of the Year.
The list is compiled from all rosters in both the Midwest League and South Atlantic League.
Stites, 22, is in his second professional season after being selected in the 17th round of the 2011 draft out of the University of Missouri. He finished the regular season with 13 saves and a 0.74 ERA. During the TinCaps’ current postseason run, he has converted three saves in as many opportunities.
Valentin, who enjoyed a 16-year Major League career, is in his first season as a manager, a season in which the TinCaps team saw Yeison Asencio win the first batting title in the 20-year history of the franchise, and reached the Midwest League championship series for the second time in franchise history.
