• Class A Lakeland closer Melvin Mercedes and left-hander Kyle Ryan were named to the North squad in the Florida State League All-Star Game. Lakeland manager Dave Huppert, pitching coach Mike Maroth and hitting coach Larry Herndon will coach the squad in the game, to be held in Dunedin on June 15.

He's batting .462 over the stretch, raising his season average from .251 to .286 in the process.
