ROCHESTER, NY – Rochester Red Wings Pitching Coach Stu Cliburn has been named to the same role for the International League in the 2019 Triple-A All-Star Game, the league office announced Monday.

Cliburn, who is in his fourth straight season with the Red Wings and seventh overall with the team, will be making his sixth career All-Star appearance and second in the IL. He was also the pitching coach for the IL squad in 2016. Since Cliburn took over as pitching coach in 2016, Rochester has the second-best earned run average in the league over that period. He helped the 2018 pitching staff lead the league in ERA, the first Wings team to do so since 1976.

The 32nd annual contest will take place at Southwest University Park in El Paso, TX and will be broadcast live on MLB Network.
