Orioles prospect Bundy makes Futures roster

Right-handers Dylan Bundy and Gerrit Cole are among the top

minor leaguers selected to play in next month’s Futures Game at

Kauffman Stadium.

Bundy has become one of Baltimore’s top prospects in his first

season of professional baseball and Cole pitched five effective

innings in his first start for Pittsburgh’s Double-A affiliate on

Wednesday. Cole was the No. 1 overall pick in last year’s draft and

Bundy went to the Orioles at No. 4.

Speedy shortstop Billy Hamilton, one of Cincinnati’s top minor

leaguers, also is on the U.S. roster for the July 8 game, part of

baseball’s All-Star festivities at Kansas City.

The teams were revealed on Thursday and include 17 former

first-round draft picks. The Dominican Republic leads the world

roster with eight players.
