Metairie, LA - New Orleans Baby Cakes second baseman Isan Diaz has been named to the All-Pacific Coast League team, the league announced on Monday.

Diaz put up a historic season, launching 26 home runs, the ninth-most in a single season in franchise history, and the most by a middle infielder. He scored 89 runs, the fourth most in a single season in New Orleans history. At the time of Diaz's promotion to Miami, Diaz ranked among the PCL's top 20 in runs scored (T-2nd), home runs (T-7th), OPS (7th), total bases (9th), hits (T-12th), batting average (15th), and RBI (T-19th).

He also hit safely in 17 consecutive games from May 29 to June 16, tied for the seventh-longest streak the league has seen this season.

The 23-year-old is the first New Orleans position player to be named to the postseason All-Star team since designated hitter Rick Short and outfielder Brandon Watson in 2005.

Diaz was also awarded a mid-season PCL All-Star award, and was named to the SiriusXM Futures Game as one of baseball's top prospects. MLB Pipeline lists him as the Marlins' No. 5 prospect, and placed him No. 84 in all of baseball. Last week, Baseball America tabbed Diaz the Marlins' Minor League Player of the Year.

The Baby Cakes begin the season's final homestand on Monday at 6:30 p.m. against the Memphis Redbirds. For more information, contact the 'Cakes at (504) 734-5155.
