Pitcher Jim Henderson was the only Nashville Sounds player named to the 2012 Pacific Coast League All-Star team, the league announced Thursday.

The 29-year-old right-hander has a team-high six saves in addition to a 3-3 record and a 1.93 ERA. He has struck out 42 batters with 16 walks in 37.1 innings over 24 relief appearances.

He did not allow a run in his first 15 games, which covered 24.1 innings. That was the longest scoreless streak of the PCL season thus far.

He was selected as a reserve by the PCL office to participate in the 25th Annual Triple-A All-Star Game, July 11. That contest features the 30-man PCL All-Star team against the International League All-Star team.

It was the second All-Star selection of Henderson’s pro career. He was named a Midwest League All-Star in 2009, his first year in the Milwaukee Brewers’ organization.
