Everett AquaSox catcher Harry Ford is getting the opportunity to showcase his talents during MLB’s All-Star Week in Seattle.
The top prospect in the Seattle Mariners’ organization was one two players from the team’s farm system selected to the MLB All-Star Futures Game on Saturday, July 8 at T-Mobile Park.
Ford, 20, joins former teammate outfielder Jonatan Clase, who began the season with High-A Everett before being promoted to Double-A Arkasas in May.
Ford, a right-handed hitter who was the No. 12 overall pick in the 2021 draft, is batting .250 with a .407 on-base percentage and .408 slugging percentage over 64 games with the AquaSox. He leads the Northwest League with 56 walks and has eight doubles, three triples, eight home runs, 38 RBI and 14 stolen bases.
Clase, 21, slashed .333/.453./.701 with nine doubles, three triples, seven home runs and 17 stolen bases over 21 games with Everett. He’s slashed .201/.318/.744 with seven doubles, two triples, nine home runs and 25 stolen bases in 44 games since being promoted to Arkansas. Clase was the Northwest League Player of the Month in April.
The Mariners’ prospects will play under coaching staff filled with former Mariners with AquaSox ties, including Felix Hernandez, Jay Buhner, Dan Wilson, Joel Pineiro and Dave Valle.
