    Two of the Chicago White Sox top prospects will take the field in Cleveland on Sunday evening as part of the MLB All-Star Futures Game.

    Infielder Nick Madrigal, who was taken with the fourth overall pick in the 2018 MLB Draft, will play second base and bat second for the American League squad in the game, which will start at 6 p.m. Sunday night.

    Madrigal, currently the fourth-rated prospect in the White Sox system according to MLB Pipeline, has a combined two home runs and 38 RBI this season in Class-A and Double-A, and has stolen 28 bases with the Winston-Salem Dash and the Birmingham Barons.

    Madrigal will be joined by former Barons teammate Luis Robert, who will be promoted to the Triple-A Charlotte Knights after he plays for the American League futures squad in Cleveland. Robert will bat third and play center field in the game.

    The outfielder has been burning up the minor leagues this season, blasting 16 home runs, driving in 53 RBIs, and stealing 29 bases in a combined 75 games between the Dash and Barons.

    The Indians will have a pair of starters in the game, as third baseman Nolan Jones and designated hitter Daniel Johnson will represent the home side.
