Colby Woodmansee, Harol Gonzalez, and Peter Alonso have been selected to represent the Brooklyn Cyclones at the 12th annual New York-Penn League All-Star Game. The game will be played at Dutchess Stadium in Fishkill, NY, on Tuesday, August 16.

Woodmansee is a 21-year-old shortstop who was selected in the fifth round of the 2016 draft. The former Arizona State Sun Devil has hit .283/.320/.377 with two home runs in 176 plate appearances over 41 games. Harol Gonzalez, a 21-year-old right-handed pitcher from the Dominican Republic, has been the Cyclones’ staff ace, with a 1.77 ERA and a 2.04 FIP in 56 innings.

Perhaps the most exciting of the three is Peter Alonso, the Mets’ second-round pick in the 2016 draft. The 21-year-old first baseman has mashed NYPL pitching since being selected from the University of Florida, hitting .324/.387/.590 with five home runs in 119 plate appearances in 29 games.

Upon his selection, our own Steve Sypa had this to say of Alonso:

Power is Alonso's calling card, and he has that in spades. The first baseman has plus raw power, and he is able to manifest that during both batting practice and in-game situations. He generates it using his natural strength and plus bat speed.

All three Cyclones players will represent the “South All-Star Squad.”
