Frisco Roughriders pitcher Jack Leiter and first baseman/outfielder Dustin Harris have been named to the American League team for the Futures Game. Leiter was named over the weekend, while Harris was added today.
Leiter was the #2 overall pick in the MLB Draft in 2021 out of Vanderbilt. He was the consensus #1 prospect in the Rangers system before the season, and was aggressively assigned to AA Frisco to start the season, where he has put up a 6.30 ERA in 50 innings over 14 games.
Harris was acquired from the Oakland A’s in the August 2020 trade for Mike Minor. He had a terrific 2021 season, slashing .327/.401/.542 in 466 plate appearances between low-A and high-A. In 311 plate appearances at AA Frisco this year, Harris has slashed .260/.351/.468 for AA Frisco while playing mostly left field.
