It was reported yesterday by Sahadev Sharma of ESPN Chicago that Chicago Cubs top prospects Javier Baez and Kris Bryant have been selected to play in the Futures Game on Sunday July 13th, part of the MLB all-star weekend in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Baez and Bryant are both with the Cubs AAA affiliate in Iowa and although both have immense talent, their numbers for the Iowa Cubs haven’t exactly reflected their potential. Javier Baez is hitting .229 with 11 home runs in 66 games for the I-Cubs and Kris Bryant is hitting .238 with five home runs in just six games. All five of Bryant’s hits have been home runs. Our fan poll for when Bryant will collect his first AAA single still stands.
