Three current Midwest League players are on the rosters for the All-Star Futures Game to be played on Sunday, July 9, at Marlins Park in Miami.
All three players are infielders: Toronto Blue Jays prospects Bo Bichette and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. of the Lansing Lugnuts, and Tampa Bay Rays prospect Lucius Fox of the Bowling Green Hot Rods. Bichette will play for the United States team, while Guerrero and Fox will suit up for the World team.
Bichette, 18, and Guerrero, 19, are the youngest players picked for the game.
Additionally, Arizona Diamondbacks prospect Jon Duplantier was chosen for the U.S. team. He pitched for the Kane County Cougars this season until being promoted to High-A Visalia last weekend.

Bichette is one of two minor-leaguers who has flirted with hitting .400 this season. He currently has a .395 batting average, having collected 104 hits in 263 at-bats in 64 games. He has nine homers, 30 doubles, 48 runs batted in, and 12 stolen bases.
Guerrero is batting .316 with five homers, 20 doubles, and 41 RBI in 66 games.
Fox is batting .280 with two homers, 11 doubles, 23 RBI, and 22 stolen bases in 63 games.
Duplantier went 6-1 with a 1.24 ERA, 78 strikeouts and 15 walks in 72.2 innings (13 games/12 starts) for the Cougars before making his High-A debut earlier this week.
