Boscan one of 3 M-Brave all-stars

Veteran catcher J.C. Boscan, who played for Gwinnett early this season, was one of three Mississippi Braves named on Tuesday to the Southern League all-star game.

Right-handed pitcher Kyle Cofield and outfielder Matt Young also were selected for the South Division team for the annual Class AA game against the North Division, which will be played on July 13 in Birmingham, Ala.

Boscan, 29, is hitting .293 with 25 RBIs in 45 games for Mississippi after batting .250 in 13 games with the Class AAA G-Braves.

Young, 26, leads the Southern League with 54 walks and is hitting .275 with 24 stolen bases. He was also named to the all-star game last year.

Cofield, 22, is 5-2 with a 3.08 ERA. Opponents are batting just .213 against the 6-foot-5 pitcher, who is in his first season in Class AA.
