All-American 'Futures' wave

Two years ago right handed pitcher Archie Bradley was selected with the seventh overall pick by the Arizona Diamondbacks. After spending the entire 2012 season with the team's Low Class A affiliate in the Midwest League, Bradley is now 10 starts into his Double-A career, needing just five starts at High Class A Visalia in the California League before receiving an aggressive promotion.

The 6-foot-4, 225-pound right-hander is making the Diamondbacks look smart by posting a 5-3, 2.29 record pitching for the Mobile Bay Bears of the Southern League. Bradley was further rewarded for his success by being selected to the 2013 Sirius XM All-Star Futures Game to be played Sunday, July 14, at Citi Field, home of the New York Mets.

Bradley was one of six former Perfect Game All-Americans to be selected to attend what serves as an All-Star and top prospect event in conjunction with the MLB All-Star Game. Catcher Austin Hedges as well as infielders Matt Davidson, Joey Gallo, Addison Russell and Francisco Lindor were also selected to play in the game. Lindor will suit up for the World Team with the other five participating for the United States Team.

Of the 25 players that made the United States roster, 20 have previously played in a Perfect Game event. In addition to Lindor, Jordan Lennerton, also a PG alumni, was also selected to play for the World Team.

Here is a list of the prospects that will be playing in the 2013 Sirius XM All-Star Futures Game who are Perfect Game alumni, along with their current minor league assignment.
