Tauchman has also consistently ranked at the top of the league in batting average all season, hitting .328 at the time of his selection.

The Palatine, Ill. native has had two stints with the Colorado Rockies this season, making his Major League debut on June 27. In 10 games with the Rockies, Tauchman has compiled a .400 on-base percentage.

Carpenter, 27, was selected as the All-PCL Team's left-handed starting pitcher. The southpaw's 144 strikeouts are just 21 shy of the Isotopes single-season strikeout leader (John Ely, 165). At the time of his selection, Carpenter appears among the top-five leaders in the PCL in ERA (4.37), strikeouts (144), innings pitched (142.0), WHIP (1.32), strikeouts per nine (9.15), lowest walks per nine (2.24) and fewest baserunners per nine (12.31).  

Tauchman and Carpenter become the 15th and 16th players in Isotopes history to be named to the All-PCL Team since the club's Inaugural Season in 2003.
