Former Nebraska All-American Spencer Schwellenbach has been selected by Major League Baseball to play in the All-Star Futures Game.
Schwellenbach will join a group of 25 prospects on the National League roster. The game is set for July 8 at 6 p.m. in Seattle. It will be televised nationally on the MLB Network.
A second round draft pick by the Atlanta Braves in 2021, Schwellenbach is 3-2 with a 2.76 ERA in 12 starts at Single-A Augusta this season.
He’s the fourth former Husker ever picked for the Futures Game, joining Jamal Strong, Alex Gordon and Joba Chamberlain, who all eventually reached the big leagues.
