Gennett to play in All-Star Futures Game
Tyler Thornburg, the Brewers’ representative in last year’s All-Star Futures Game, said about the nicest thing you can say about this year’s pick.
“He just hits and hits and hits,” Thornburg said.
He is Scooter Gennett, the 5-foot-9 second base prospect who has mashed at every level since the Brewers made him a 16th Draft pick in 2009, and will get a chance to hit on a national stage July 9 at Kauffman Stadium.
The 22-year-old is Milwaukee’s only representative in 14th annual showcase of prospect talent, a U.S. vs. the World event on the Sunday before the All-Star Game that has included the likes of Prince Fielder and Rickie Weeks (2004), Ryan Braun and Yovani Gallardo (2006) and Brett Lawrie (2010).
Gennett will be part of the U.S. roster.
