All-Star Events on the field started yesterday with the 2015 Futures Games. Once again, a team comprised of United States-born prospects squared off against prospects representing other countries from around the world. The U.S. team prevailed by a score of 10-1. Two prospects of the Arizona Diamondbacks participated from the World side and received a little bit of playing time.

Outfielder Socrates Brito, who plays for Double A Mobile, got into the game in the sixth inning. He recorded one putout and had numerous balls hit his way as the U.S. pounded out 13 hits on the day. Brito flied out to left field in his only at-bat. Pitcher Wei-Chieh Huang, who is on the roster for Single A Kane County, faced two batters on the fourth inning. He got Bradley Zimmer to fly out to center field and Tony Kemp to fly out to left field.

Both men will now return to their respective teams and hopefully take the next step up the D’backs’ organization.
