Brock Holt wasn't the only member of the Red Sox to be named an All-Star on Monday. After being optioned back to Triple-A last week, outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. was added to the International League All-Star team. He had received the most votes prior to his big league call up on June 25. Bradley, Jr. is hitting .319 in 54 games for the PawSox this season. He is currently second in the International League in batting (.319), second in on-base percentage (.396) and third in slugging percentage (.460). He also leads the PawSox with 18 doubles and has four home runs to go along with 16 RBIs. The PawSox also announced left-hander Brian Johnson, who was elected to the International League All-Star Team, will not participate as he would have been unable to pitch in the game as his next PawSox start is July 11. The Triple-A All-Star Game is slated for Wednesday, July 15 at Werner Park in Omaha, Nebraska. For more Red Sox news, check out weei.com/redsox.
