Pitcher Casey Kelly, who dominated the competition this year with the Greenville Drive, was given another career boost by being named to the Futures Game.
Kelly is the only Boston Red Sox prospect selected to play in the game, which highlights some of the Minor League’s most promising players. Casey will play for the U.S. team on All-Star Sunday, July 12 in St. Louis.
While with Greenville he posted a 6-1 record with league-leading 1.12 ERA. He was later promoted to Salem and was named a South Atlantic League All-Star.
