Harvey, Marte in Futures Game
By Ian Begley
Prospects Matt Harvey and Jefry Marte will represent the Mets in Major League Baseball's Future's Game.
Harvey, who was just promoted to Double-A Binghamton and will make his first start on Sunday in Bowie, Md., will suit up for the United States. Marte, a hot-hitting third baseman with Single-A St. Lucie, will play for the World team.
The game is slated for July 10 at Chase Field as part of the All-Star festivities.
Harvey went 8-2 with a 2.37 ERA in the Florida State League. The Mets took Harvey with the seventh overall pick of the 2010 amateur draft.
Marte hit .283 with five homers and 32 RBIs in 68 games for St. Lucie.
