Sizemore, Martinez to Play in All-Star Futures Game
MLB announced the rosters for the All-Star Futures Game, to be played July 13 as part of the All-Star Game festivities at the park formerly known as New Comiskey in Chicago. OF Grady Sizemore and C-1B Victor Martinez were selected to play for the U.S. and World teams, respectively. Despite leading the Eastern League in average, on-base percentage and slugging last season, Martinez got off to a slow start at AAA Buffalo this year. Martinez was selected as a first baseman and not as a catcher, perhaps indicating that the Tribe no longer sees him in that role.
