Two of the Dodgers’ top young prospects were named to this season’s All-Star Futures Game.
The game matches star minor leaguers from the United States against a world team.
Two products at Class-A Rancho Cucamonga will represent the Dodgers, left-hander Julio Urias and infielder Corey Seager.
Urias, still only 17, will play for the world team. He is 1-1 with a 3.35 ERA in 14 games (11 starts), with 48 strikeouts and 21 walks in 45 2/3 innings.
Seager, the Dodgers’ No.1 draft pick in 2112, leads the Quakes with a .353 batting average, with 13 home runs and 53 RBIs. The 20-year-old shortstop also leads the team with 27 doubles in just 269 at-bats and has a .405 on-base percentage. He was selected for the U.S. team.
The game is scheduled to be played July 13 at Target Field in Minneapolis, two days prior to the Major League Baseball All-Star game there.
