Arizona Diamondbacks prospect Braden Shipley pitches well in Futures Game

With the Arizona Diamondbacks in last place in the NL at the All-Star break, it may be time to look ahead to the future.

One prospect who may play a role in it saw action during the Futures Game in Target Field.

The D-backs’ Braden Shipley, the team’s No. 2 prospect according to Baseball America, recorded a pair of outs for the U.S. in its 3-2 victory over the World.

Shipley entered in the seventh inning with one out and none on. He gave up a single to the first hitter he faced, but escaped the inning unscathed after getting the next two batters to fly out.

The D-backs took Shipley, 22, No. 15 overall in the 2013 draft out of UNLV.

In his second season in the minor leagues, Shipley is 5-6 and a 4.40 ERA combined with Single-A South Bend and High-A Visalia. He has struck out 89 in 86 innings across 15 starts.
