Mychal Givens and Mike Yastrzemski are two of the four Baysox in the Eastern League All-Star Game.

Outfielder Mike Yastrzemski and reliever Mychal Givens highlight a list of four Bowie Baysox players named Wednesday to the Eastern League All-Star Game.

Givens, the Orioles' 2009 second-round draft pick who converted from shortstop to pitcher in 2013, has been the top reliever in the organization through the first half of the season.

The right-hander has struck out 59 batters with a 0.946 WHIP in 43 1/3 innings of relief (25 appearances), and made his major league debut last Wednesday with a scoreless inning against the Boston Red Sox.

Yastrzemski, grandson of Red Sox legend Carl Yastrzemski, has hit .247/.316/.365 with team highs of 35 runs scored, 30 RBIs and 20 doubles.

Catcher Rossmel Perez and right-hander Terry Doyle round out the Baysox contingent for the game, which will be played July 15 in Portland, Maine.

Doyle has been a reliable arm both as a starter and long reliever for a Baysox pitching staff that has been hit by injuries and inconsistency in the rotation. He’s 7-1 with a 2.37 ERA in 13 games (eight starts), with his ERA the lowest on the team among starters.

Perez, signed as a minor league free agent this offseason, has hit .292 with five doubles and 17 RBIs in 41 games for the Baysox.
