The versatile outfielder and second-year pro is recognized by the NWL after an impressive 2019 season

EUGENE, OR – The Eugene Emeralds, proud Minor League affiliate of Major League Baseball’s Chicago Cubs, are proud to announce that Ems outfielder Edmond Americaan has been named a Northwest League Year-End All-Star, as revealed by the Northwest League on Thursday afternoon.

The second-year pro from Curacao has been consistently solid for the Emeralds all season long, posting a .283/.350/.426 slash line with a .776 OPS, 67 hits, 17 doubles, 4 triples, 3 HRs, 29 RBI and 13 steals in 62 games played. Defensively, Americaan showcased an impressive arm while also displaying the ability to play all three outfield positions.

This year has seen Americaan post his second straight solid season to start his pro career after batting .295 in 30 games with the Rookie-level AZL Cubs 1 in 2018.

A 35th round selection in the 2018 MLB Draft out of Chipola Junior College (Florida), Americaan opted to sign with the Cubs as opposed to attending the University of Miami.

He joins a slew of impressive players named to the 2019 NWL Year-End All-Star Team, as shown below:
