Red Sox Have Just One Player—Bryan Mata—In 2018 Futures All-Star Game

In an indication of just how shallow the Red Sox minor-league system is, just one player from the organization will appear in the 2018 All-Star Futures Game. Major League Baseball announced the U.S.A. and World rosters and only Venezuelan native Bryan Mata (Salem Red Sox-Single A Ball) will represent the Boston organization. The 6'3", 160-pound Mata is a right-handed pitcher who has gone 5-2 with a 3.14 ERA so far this season. In 15 starts for Salem, the 19-year old has struck out 56 batters in 66 innings of work. The game will take place on Sunday, July 15th at Nationals Park. You can see the full rosters of the U.S.A. and World teams HERE.
