The number of Reading Phillies heading to the Eastern League All-Star Game reached eight on Saturday, with the additions of Leandro Castro and Lisalverto Bonilla.
Castro and Bonilla join Darin Ruf, Cesar Hernandez, Justin Friend, Sebastian Valle, Troy Hanzawa, and Julio Rodriguez as Reading Phillies' All-Star selections.
Castro, an outfielder, is hitting .310 with five home runs and 38 RBIs on the season.
Bonilla, a relief pitcher, was recently named to the Futures Game. Now, he'll get to appear in the All-Star Game as well.
Bonilla has pitched to a 1.95 ERA out of the bullpen, and leads all R-Phils' relievers with 40 strikeouts on the season.
