The 2012 MLB Futures Game will take place on Sunday, July 8, and the Chicago White Sox will be represented by 19-year old third baseman Carlos Sanchez. Sanchez has been among the biggest surprises in the White Sox's underwhelming farm system this season, hitting .327/.386/.412 with one home run, 32 RBI and 11 stolen bases.
Sanchez is currently leading the Carolina League with 85 hits for the Single-A Winston-Salem Dash.
Sanchez will be a member of Bernie Williams' World Team, which will be opposed by manager George Brett and the U.S. Team.
The World Team includes players from 11 different countries and territories. Sanchez is set to be one of six players at the game hailing from Venezuela. Only the Dominican Republic, with eight players, has more members on the World Team.
Current left fielder Dayan Viciedo represented the White Sox at the game last year.
