The Milwaukee Brewers announced Thursday afternoon that two current Sky Sox will make the trip to Miami, Fla., for the 2017 All-Star Futures Game at Marlins Park.

The 19th annual prospect All-Star game, which airs on July 9 at 2 p.m. MDT on MLB Network, will feature current Sky Sox OF Lewis Brinson and INF Mauricio Dubon.

The pair of Sox joins teammate Garrett Cooper as the three 2017 Colorado Springs representatives playing in All-Star Games after Cooper was named the starting Pacific Coast League first baseman for the 2017 Triple-A All-Star Game in Tacoma, Wash., Wednesday.

Entering the 2017 season, Brinson was named the No. 1 prospect in the Brewers organization with Dubon slotted at No. 11. Brinson also ranks 13th on MLB.com's Top-100 Prospect List.

Brinson received his first call-up to the Major Leagues on June 11 and played in 14 games with the Brewers before being optioned back to Colorado Springs on June 27. The 6'3" outfielder has helped the Sky Sox earn one of the top records through the first half of the Pacific Coast League season, hitting .323 with 8 home runs, 47 runs scored and 31 RBI through 49 games.

Dubon was promoted to the Sky Sox on June 26 from Double-A Biloxi, where he led the Southern League with 31 stolen bases, while scoring 34 runs and collecting 24 RBI in 71 games. A native of Honduras, Dubon has driven in three runs and scored twice in his first four Pacific Coast League games.
