Hoskins and Kingery to represent Philadelphia in Futures Game

Rhys Hoskins and Scott Kingery will represent Philadelphia in baseball's Futures Game
Rhys Hoskins and Scott Kingery will represent Philadelphia in Major League Baseball's annual Futures Game set for All-Star weekend at Marlins Park in Miami. The contest is a celebration of the sport's top prospects.

Hoskins is hitting .301 with a .989 OPS, 17 homers and 19 doubles for triple-A Lehigh Valley. Kingery, who was promoted to triple-A earlier this week, is hitting a combined .313 with 20 homers and 49 RBIs after opening the year at double-A Reading.



Since it's establishment in 1999, the Futures Game has grown into a highlight of the All-Star festivities. The format pits top minor-league prospects from the United States against a team of prospects representing the rest of the world.

The rosters are selected by Baseball America, in conjunction with league and team officials.

Full rosters for both clubs can be found here - United States & World.
