Two Columbus Catfish players have earned post-season honors ... with a week left in the regular season.
Outfielders Ryan Royster and Desmond Jennings were named today to the South Atlantic League post-season All-star roster.
Royster is batting .323, 5th in the league, prior to tonight's game. He leads the league in home runs with 38, is tops in RBIs with 96, has the best slugging percentage (.587), and leads in total bases (273). He's scored 87 runs, 7th best in the SAL.
Jennings is currently on the disabled list, but has had an impressive season as well. His .315 average is 7th best in the league. His 45 stolen bases is 4th in the league, despite not playing the last 14 games due to injury. His on-base percentage (.401) is 7th in the league.
Both were named to the mid-season All-star game, as members of the Southern Division team. The post-season roster is for the entire league. The roster has 15 spots: 8 position players, 3 pitchers, a designated hitter, 2 utility infielders, and a utility outfielder.
