The Dodgers are sending a few guys out to the All-Star this week to represent them on the NL squad. But they also had 2 prospects make the NL team for the Future’s Game on Sunday as well. Both got into the game and both made the most out of their limited appearances.
Dodgers’ number 3 prospect Michael Busch entered the game in the 6th inning for an at-bat. He slapped a ball to the right side that got through for a base hit in his only at-bat. Busch had come into the game as a defensive replacement the inning prior. He ranks out as the number 81 overall prospect in baseball.
Their number 27 prospect Andre Jackson also came into the game. Jackson relieved Marlins’ number 3 prospect Max Meyer in the 2nd inning. The Dodgers righty held the American League futures team to just 1 hit in an inning pitched.
The National League team would go on to dominate in the Future’s Game. They hit 5 homeruns and won the game 8-3 with some incredible pitching. The Dodgers only had those 2 guys in the Future’s Game this year.
The All-Star Game will take place on Tuesday but not before the highly anticipated Homerun Derby on Monday night at Coors Field.
