Two Sox prospects picked for Rising Stars Game

Two Red Sox prospects — third baseman Michael Almanzar and outfielder Bryce Brentz — were selected to the Arizona Fall League’s Rising Stars Game.

The game will be Nov. 3 at 8 p.m. on MLB Network.

Almanzar was selected on potential, not performance. He was hitting .209 with a .320 OBP and.233 slugging percentage through Wednesday. Brentz was at .286/.362/.427.

Almanzar, 21, had a solid season for High Single A Salem (.300/.353/.458) that included 36 doubles and 12 home runs. Brentz, who turns 24 in December, finished last season with Triple A Pawtucket after hitting .296/.355/.478 for Pawtucket.
