Jackson, Hattig Selected to Futures Game

Two organization prospects will represent the Toronto Blue Jays at the Futures All-Star Game in Detroit on July 10. New Hampshire's Zach Jackson and Syracuse third baseman John Hattig will have the honor this season.

Jackson, a first round selection in the 2004 Draft, went 8-1 with a 2.88 ERA in ten starts with the Dunedin Blue Jays. Jackson was rewarded with a promotion to Double-A, and is currently 2-1 with a 3.26 ERA in five starts. The left-hander has walked just five batters and struck out twenty-four in thirty innings of work.

Hattig, a Guam native, was selected as a member of the World Team. The infielder has had an injury plagued season, and is currently on the disabled list. Hattig began the season on the disabled list and has hit .325 with a home run and ten runs batted since then. He has been sidelined since June 13 with an injury and it is unknown if he will be able to play next month.

Last year Aaron Hill was the MVP of the Futures Game going 1-1 with a double and two runs batted in. Catcher Robinzon Diaz represented the Blue Jays as the World Team representative.
