Some of best future MLB stars were out in Lakeland this weekend for the 2017 FSL All-Star Game.

The Cincinnati Reds’ 3B Nick Senzel (No. 20), New York Yankees’ SS Jorge Mateo (No. 39), and Pittsburgh Pirates’ RHP Mitch Keller (No.40) were on the roster of the 2017 FSL All-Star Game at Marchant Stadium in Lakeland.  The three players are in the top 100 MLB prospects.

Keller, suffering from a back injury, was not in the lineup. Senzel batted sixth for the North All-Stars, going 0-1 with a walk while his teammate for the evening, Mateo,  was in the leadoff spot and was 0-2.
