Four Erie players — Perez, Saupold, Startup, McCann — named Eastern League All-Stars

Four members of the Double-A Erie SeaWolves — Hernan Perez, James McCann, Warwick Saupold and Will Startup — were all named Eastern League All-Stars.

Perez (.300) and McCann (.306) have the best averages for players currently on the Erie roster, and rank first and second, respectively, in hits. Perez (pictured, top) is second in the EL in hits and first in doubles.

Saupold, a 23-year-old, right-handed starter from Australia, is 4-3 with a 2.96 ERA — sixth-best in the EL — in 13 starts for Erie, holding opponents to a .226 batting average.

A 29-year-old lefty reliever, Startup is 3-1 with a 2.10 ERA in 34 1/3 innings pitched, and has limited left-handed hitters to a .137 batting average.
