Major League Baseball named Twins top prospect, shortstop Nick Gordon, to the All-Star Futures Game, which will be played Sunday at Marlins Park.
The 21-year-old shortstop, who will play for the U.S. team, has hit .306/.375/.470 with six homers, 22 doubles, 45 RBIs and nine stolen bases in 76 games this season at Double-A Carolina. He was named a Southern League All-Star earlier this season.
Gordon was chosen fifth overall in the 2014 MLB Draft. His older brother, Dee Gordon, represented the Dodgers organization at the 2010 All-Star Futures Game. The brothers are the sons of former Major League closer Tom “Flash” Gordon. All three family members are represented by BHSC.
