Carter Kieboom and Taylor Trammell will be packing their bags and heading to the Futures Game as part of the All-Star weekend at Cleveland's Progressive Field.

Trammell, the former Mount Paran Christian standout representing the Cincinnati Reds' organization, is returning as the reigning Futures Game MVP after batting 2-for-2 with a home run last year in Washington.

With the Double-A Chattanooga Lookouts, Trammell came into Friday batting .243 with four home runs and 14 stolen bases. He was invited to major league camp for the first time with the Reds this spring.

Kieboom, a former Walton High School star, had a taste of the majors for 11 games with the Washington Nationals before getting sent back to the Triple-A Fresno Grizzlies. With Fresno, he leads the team in RBIs with 57, to go with his 13 homers and a .316 average.

Joining Trammell and Kieboom in Cleveland will be two of the Braves’ top prospects, pitcher Ian Anderson and outfielder Christian Pache.

At Double-A Mississippi, Anderson holds a 5-5 record with a 3.20 ERA and 99 strikeouts in 15 appearances. Pache is hitting .295 and leads the team in home runs (10) and RBIs (45).

Also in the game will be former Georgia Tech catcher Joey Bart. In his first full year in the San Francisco Giants' organization after being drafted second overall in 2018, Bart has batting .243 with five homers and 19 RBIs in 27 games.

The Futures Game will be televised exclusively on MLB Network on July 7.
