Loop named Carolina League All-Star


With a 2.61 ERA, 6 saves, and 40 strikeouts in 38 innings pitched this season, Derrick Loop has earned the right to represent the Salem Red Sox as a Carolina League All-Star. A former Independent League standout, Loop will be Salem's only representative on the team when the Carolina League All-Stars play the California League All-Stars on June 23 in Lake Elsinore, California. Loop was originally selected in the 23rd round of the 2006 draft by the Indians but was released and wound up pitching with Chico of the Golden Baseball League before signing with the Red Sox in June, 2008. Since joining the organization, the big lefty owns a record of 8-3 with a 2.86 ERA and 83 strikeouts in 91.1 innings.
