LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers’ Class-A affiliate Great Lakes Loons will host the 2017 Midwest League All-Star Game, and a pair of Dodgers minor leaguers will get to play in their home park, with pitcher Dustin May and catcher Keibert Ruiz named All-Stars on Wednesday.

The All-Star Game will be held at Dow Diamond in Midland, Mich. on June 20, with May and Ruiz on the Eastern Division team. The All-Star rosters were selected by the field mangers on the Midwest League.

May was drafted by the Dodgers out of high school in the third round in 2016, and is 3-2 with a 3.93 ERA in 11 starts for the Loons this season, with 54 strikeouts and just eight walks in 50⅓ innings.

Before the season, May was ranked the Dodgers’ No. 21 prospect by our own David Hood.

Ruiz, 18, is hitting .290/.337/.368 with nine doubles and one home run in 43 games.
