Oritz, Romine are FSL All-Stars

Tampa Yankees reliever Jonathan Ortiz and catcher Austin Romine have named to the Florida State League's North All-Star squad.

Ortiz, who recorded 33 saves for the Charleston RiverDogs last season, had struggled for Tampa this season. While he had earned 7 saves, Ortiz posted a 6.14 ERA and was 0-3, and was sent back to Charleston at the end of May.

Romine has split the catching duties the last two seasons, both in Charleston and Tampa, with Jesus Montero. With Montero's recent promotion to Trenton, more of the load should fall on Romine. He's hitting .282 with 6 HR and 28 RBI in 50 games, and is known for his defensive prowess.
