Three Carolina Mudcats were named to the Carolina League’s year-end All-Star team recently. Shortstop Johan Camargo, outfielder Connor Lien and first baseman Jacob Schrader picked up honors for their work during the 2015 season, which concludes Monday.
Camargo, 21, was a mid-season Carolina League All-Star and is currently ranked as the No. 20 prospect in the Braves’ farm system by MLB.com. He leads the league in double plays turned and defensive assists.
Lien, 21, was hitting .284 with 32 stolen bases at the time of the announcement. He was the Mudcats’ player of the month in May and was the Carolina League Player of the Week in July.
Schrader, 24, has notched career bests in home runs, RBIs and runs scored this season. He was the Mudcats’ player of the month in April.
Final attendance numbers: Carolina drew 202,072 fans in 67 games at Five County Stadium this season for an average of 3,016 fans a night.
The Mudcats averaged 3,362 a game in 2014.
Wrong division in 2015: The Mudcats will finish third in the Carolina League’s Southern Division once the season wraps up on Labor Day. The Mudcats’ overall record would have been good enough for no worse than an overall second place finish in the Northern Division and maybe the best record of the season, depending on the final few games of the season.
The playoff teams this year for the Carolina League will be Myrtle Beach, Winston-Salem, Lynchburg and Wilmington (Del.).
