Five members of the 2013 York Revolution have been named to the Atlantic League's Postseason All-Star teams.
Pitcher Chris Cody, catcher Salvador Paniagua and second baseman Andres Perez were selected First Team All-Stars, while infielders Andy Marte and Wilson Batista were named Second Team All-Stars. It marks the fourth consecutive year that at least five Revs have been honored by the league at season's end.
Having already been named the Revs' Player of the Year for 2013, Cody becomes the first pitcher in Revolution history to be named a First Team All-Star, claiming the left-handed starter spot on the all-league squad. Cody finished the season ranking second in the league in wins (15), while pacing the circuit in strikeouts (139) and innings pitched (176), establishing single-season franchise records in each of those categories. His 3.12 ERA was the league's lowest by a southpaw and third-lowest overall while establishing the second-lowest mark in a season in team history. Cody also represented the Revs as the Freedom Division' starting pitcher at the 2013 Atlantic League All-Star Game.
Paniagua becomes the first catcher in Revs history to be selected a First Team All-Star. In his first season as a full-time starter in York, Paniagua batted .279 with 14 home runs and 54 RBIs in a career-high 426 at-bats, also earning a trip to the Atlantic League All-Star Game. His batting average was the league's highest among regular catchers, while his 109 games played behind the plate led the league and were by far the most in a season in Revs history.
Perez is a First Team All-Star for the second consecutive year after batting .290 with 13 home runs and 71 RBIs in 129 games played. Perez also led the league with a Revs record 38 doubles, while ranking third in the league in hits (151), total bases (230) and extra-base hits (52).
Marte was named the first baseman on the Second Team All-League squad, having played both corner infield spots during his time in York. Marte batted .301 with 19 home runs and 74 RBIs in just 96 games before his contract was purchased by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on Aug. 4, making him one of five Revs players to earn contracts with Major League organizations during the 2013 season. He finished the season ranking second in the Atlantic League in slugging percentage (.526) and ninth in batting average.
Batista was named the shortstop on the Second Team, but played every infield position for the Revs in 2013 becoming just the fourth player in team history to do so. Batista finished the year batting .304, eighth-highest in the league, while his 144 hits were the league's fifth-most. He closed the campaign on a tear, hitting .325 from June 30-on and a robust .340 after July 15. Batista connected on six home runs and drove in 67 runs, a club record for a switch-hitter.
