Enyel De Los Santos to represent Phillies at Futures Game
Enyel De Los Santos will represent the Philadelphia Phillies in baseball's Futures Game as part of MLB's All-Star Sunday down in Washington, D.C. Born in the Dominican Republic, he'll be playing for the World Team.

The 22-year-old right-hander has pieced together a spectacular campaign at Triple-A Lehigh Valley, posting a 1.89 ERA over 16 starts. He's held opponents to a .210 batting average and has 85 strikeouts over 95 1/3 innings. He also leads the International League in wins and ERA.

MLB Pipeline lists De Los Santos as the Phillies' 11th ranked prospect.

Rhys Hoskins and Scott Kingery represented the Phillies in last year's Futures Game. Other prominent franchise names that played in the contest include Chase Utley, Ryan Howard, and Aaron Nola.

The Phillies acquired De Los Santos this past offseason from the San Diego Padres in exchange for shortstop Freddy Galvis.
