LOS ANGELES -- A pair of top Dodgers prospects will represent the club next month at the All-Star Futures Game in Minnesota. Shortstop Corey Seager and left-handed pitcher Julio Uiras, both currently with Class-A Rancho Cucamonga, have been selected to play in the 16th annual prospect showcase during the midsummer festivities.
The Futures Game will be played at 2 p.m. PT on Sunday, July 13 at Target Field in Minnesota, two days before the All-Star Game. The game will be televised by MLB Network and shown online on MLB.com, with Matt Vasgersian, Sean Casey, Jonathan Mayo and Heidi Watney on the call.
Seager, 20, is hitting .353/.405/.613 with 27 doubles, 13 home runs, 52 RBI and 49 runs scored in 65 games. The 2012 first-round pick by the Dodgers ranks among the top three in the California League in hits, extra-base hits, doubles, batting average, slugging percentage and OPS.
Urias, just 17, is 1-1 with a 3.35 ERA in 14 appearances with the Quakes, with 48 strikeouts and 21 walks in 45⅔ innings.
Seager is on the U.S. roster, and Urias is on the World roster.
Current Dodgers to have played in both the Futures Game and All-Star Game include Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford, Adrian Gonzalez, Zack Greinke, Clayton Kershaw and Hanley Ramirez.
