Guilmet makes Carolina League all-star team
Oakmont High School graduate Preston Guilmet was named to the Carolina League all-star team that will play the California League all-stars Tuesday, and that means a trip home.
The California League-Carolina League All-Star Game will be played at John Thurman Field in Modesto, home of the Nuts. Modesto is acting as host to the all-star game for the first time.
Guilmet is having a season similar to 2010, when he helped the Lake County (Ohio) Captains win the Midwest League championship. His stellar numbers pitching in relief earned him a promotion to the Kinston Indians this season. The California and Carolina are high-A leagues.
The right-hander was second in the Carolina League with 14 saves in 22 appearances through Sunday. He walked four and had 26 strikeouts, a 1.48 ERA and a 0.90 WHIP in 24 1/3 innings.
