engelThe Carolina League released its Year-End All-Star roster on Saturday, and a league-leading five Winston-Salem players made the team: right-hander Matt Heidenreich, outfielder Adam Engel (Loveland, Ohio), infielders Jake Peter and Trey Michalczewski and catcher Omar Narvaez.

Named to the Year-End squad as a utility outfielder, Engel is batting .254/.341/.369 with six home runs and 39 RBIs, playing in all but two games this season for the Dash. The Loveland, Ohio, native’s 62 stolen bases are not only the most of any Carolina League player, but also the third-best of any player in the Minors. Engel has precisely 30 more steals than the next-best Carolina League player. Ranked as the 17th-best prospect in the White Sox system, Engel tops the league in games (127), at-bats (488) and runs (85). He places second in hits (124), tied for second in triples (8) and fourth in both walks (60) and total bases (180).
