Barons duo ready for Southern League All-Star Game
PENSACOLA, Fla. —
Southern League Baseball is ready to put it's stars on display.
The SL All-Star Game is tonight in Pensacola, home of the Blue Wahoos.
The Birmingham Barons have a pair of pitchers on the North roster, left-hander Jordan Guerrero and right-hander Michael Kopech. The duo has combined for 174 strikeouts this season.
Kopech was a big piece of the trade between Boston and Chicago and says the White Sox style suits him.
"I feel it was kind of like a clean slate. A fresh start," Kopech said. "Once I got over to the White Sox organization, they were nothing but welcoming. I was able to fit in right with what they were trying to do with me."
