Tyler Austin Chosen To Play In Futures Game

Borrowed from Lohud

Charleston outfielder Tyler Austin has been named to the U.S. Team for next month’s Future’s Game in Kasas City.
The 20-year-old right fielder is hitting .336/.409/.655 with 14 home runs and 50 RBI through 58 games. The converted corner infielder is playing the outfield for the first time, and he’s emerged as one of the top position prospects in the organization.
The Futures Game features will be played on All-Star Sunday, July 8, begin at 5 p.m. ET and televised on ESPN2 and MLB.TV. Major League Baseball, in conjunction with the Major League Baseball Scouting Bureau,, Baseball America and the 30 Major League team, selected the 25-man rosters for both the U.S. Team and the World Team. Each organization is represented and players from all full-season minor leagues were eligible to participate.

Congratulations to Tyler! He is my favorite Yankees prospect so to see him flourishing really makes me happy. Tell him and his mother congratulations, both Greedy Pinstripes followers, on twitter @taustin2323 and @austinmom23
