Two Mud Hens — third baseman Mike Hessman and outfielder Ezequiel Carrera — and Clay High School grad A.J. Achter all have been named to the International League All-Star team, the league announced today.

Hessman was elected to start at third base for the IL All-Stars, while Carrera was one of three outfielders elected to the starting lineup.

Hessman is tied for second in the IL with 15 home runs and is hitting .258 with 33 RBIs. Carrera ranks tenth in the league with a .307 batting average and has four homers and 27 RBIs as well as a IL-leading 33 stolen bases.

Achter, a reliever for Minnesota’s Triple-A team in Rochester, was one of two relief pitchers elected to the team. This season Achter is 2-2 with four saves and a 1.60 ERA in 22 appearances for the Red Wings.

The game will be played at Durham Bulls Athletic Park in Durham, N.C., on Wednesday, July 16.
