MLB All-Star Futures Game: U.S. Futures Stars Defeat World 17-5

The U.S.-born players dominated the World roster in the Major League Baseball Futures game to kick off the All-Star week in Kansas City. The U.S. won easily 17-5, but Indians' first base prospect Jesus Aguilar contributed to the World team at Kauffman Stadium.

Aguilar is having an excellent season at the Class A Advanced level with the Carolina Mudcats in the Carolina League. he is batting .305 with 11 home runs as the 22-year old native of Venezuela earned the start for the World team. He was 1 for 3 with a walk and a run scored in four plate appearances.

Aguilar signed with the Indians as an undrafted free agent in 2007 and led all Cleveland prospects with 82 RBIs during the 2011 season. He split last year between the Midwest League and the higher Carolina League and had had 23 home runs and 131 hits as one of Cleveland's top prospects.

2011 first round draft pick Francisco Lindor also got one at bat and delivered a late single. Lindor is currently playing with the Lake County Captains of the Midwest League.
