Bryson Stott has covered a lot of ground this season.
He roomed with Bryce Harper during spring training then played a month for the Phillies’ High A Jersey Shore club before earning a promotion to Double A Reading.
Now, Stott is headed to Denver on All-Star weekend.
The 23-year-old infielder has been selected to play for the National League club in the 22nd annual Futures Game. Stott will be the Phillies’ lone representative. The game will be played on Sunday afternoon, July 11, at Coors Field, site of the July 13 All-Star Game.
Stott, 23, was the Phillies’ first-round draft pick in 2019. The club selected him 14th overall out of UNLV.
A lefty hitter, Stott has been one of the standouts in the Phillies’ system this season. In 46 games between Jersey Shore and Reading, he’s hitting .282 with a .413 on-base percentage and a .509 slugging percentage. He has nine homers and 22 RBIs. He played second base and shortstop early in the season at Jersey Shore but has been used solely at shortstop with Reading.
Stott hails from Las Vegas, just like the Phillies’ highest profile player, Harper, and the two are close. In fact, when Stott needed a place to stay in spring training, Harper opened his door.
