Former Husker Schwellenbach Picked for All-Star Futures Game

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.
