A total of 10 Dodgers minor leaguers across three levels were named to rosters for All-Star Games to be played on June 17.

MIDLAND, Mich. -- The Class-A Great Lakes Loons will be represented by three players at the Midwest League All-Star Game, the league announced on Tuesday. Outfielder Joey Curletta, catcher Kyle Farmer and relief pitcher Mark Pope were named to the Eastern Division team.

The Midwest League All-Star Game will be played on June 17 at Fifth Third Ballpark in Comstock, Mich., home of the West Michigan Whitecaps, a Tigers affiliate.

Curletta, drafted in the sixth round in 2012, is hitting .311/.355/.413 with 15 doubles and two home runs in 56 games. The 20-year-old right-hander has had hitting streaks of 10, nine, eight and another eight games already this season.

Farmer was an infielder throughout his college career at the University of Georgia, but was converted to catcher upon getting drafted in the eighth round in 2013. The 23-year-old is hitting .315/.367/.464 with 15 doubles, three triples, two home runs and eight stolen bases in 46 games.

Pope, 24, was signed by the Dodgers as a minor league free agent in January. The former starter has shifted to relief and has allowed one run in 21 games this season. Pope has allowed 11 hits and eight walks in 22 innings, with 24 strikeouts. The right-hander has seven saves in seven opportunities.
