The Los Angeles Dodgers recently had prospects Dustin May and Keibert Ruiz of Low-A Great Lakes named to the 2017 Midwest League All-Star Game. On Tuesday, Loons infielder Brendon Davis was added to the group.

Davis joins the All-Star Game as a replacement for the injured South Bend Cubs third baseman Wladimir Galindo. Davis, in his second season with the Loons, is in the midst of a career year.

Entering play Tuesday, he’s batting .256/.360/.425 with 13 doubles, six six home runs and 30 RBIs in 57 games. Last season, Davis hit .241/.295/.334 with 18 doubles, five home runs and 49 RBIs in 109 games with the Loons.

The Dodgers selected Davis out of Lakewood High School in California in the fifth round of the 2015 Draft. He’s shown plenty of versatility this season, playing second base and third base in addition to his natural shortstop position.

That type of versatility should bode well for Davis in the future, as the Dodgers front office and manager Dave Roberts value positional flexibility arguably more than any other franchise.

Great Lakers currently sits at 33-30, which has them fifth in the Eastern Division of the Midwest League. The Loons are hosting the Midwest All-Star Game at Dow Diamond on Tuesday, June 20.

In addition to their All-Stars, the Loons will be represented in the Home Run Derby by outfielder Carlos Rincon. He’s slugged 11 home runs in 44 games thus far.
