Three Springfield Cardinals, Colby Rasmus, Bryan Anderson and Chris Perez, have been named Texas League Post-Season All-Stars after garnering the same recognition at mid-season.

Texas League Post-Season All-Stars were announced on Monday by the League Office, with three Springfield Cardinals earning a spot on this season’s roster.

Outfielder Colby Rasmus, catcher Bryan Anderson and reliever Chris Perez, all of whom were mid-season Texas League All-Stars, rounded out a great season by picking up the post-season honor as well.

Perez went 2-0 with a 2.43 ERA in 39 games. Perez has converted six of seven saves since taking over the closer’s role in Memphis.
