Revolution shut out of Baseball America postseason All-Star Team

Each season, Baseball America names an All-Star Team encompassing all of the quote-un-quote “non-affiliated” leagues.  Even though the level of play varies from league to league, I.E. the Frontier League (Short-A to Class Aish level) to the Atlantic League (Triple-Aish), the selections cover the Can-Am League, Frontier League, American Association and Atlantic League, which is how you would rank such leagues from lowest to highest level of competition in this writer’s humble opinion.  It’s based mostly on stats, in fairness to players who are earlier in their careers than other Atlantic League veterans.

Unfortunately, no Revolution players were selected this year, after two each earned such honors the past two seasons.  In 2012, Chris Nowak and Andres Perez were both named.  In 2011, it was Nowak and Ramon Castro recognized.  Four Atlantic League players did make the team however.
