Today’s prospect showcase game – the All-Star Futures Game – featured two of the Chicago Cubs’ top prospects, catcher Kyle Schwarber and pitcher Carl Edwards, Jr. The latter pitched 0.2 innings without giving up a run and notching a strikeout, though he did give up two hits.
Schwarber threw out a runner behind the plate, and then also did this:
That two-run triple contributed to the U.S. team’s 10-1 win, and Schwarber was ultimately named the game’s MVP.
Not a bad day, young man. And he got to do it in front of his hometown crowd in Cincinnati.
