Player of the Week: Alex Presley
Presley had been fighting a 1-15 slump, but the Hickory Crawdad caught fire the last seven days with a 16-31 tear that raised his batting average 28 points. Presley hammered out three doubles, two triples and a home run as well as finished five of six games with multiple hits.

The Futures Game rosters are determined by mlb.com, Major League Baseball and Baseball America in an effort to put together a game featuring players that will have a career in the big leagues. The event will be that Sunday at 3 p.m. and televised by ESPN2.
Tennessee Smokies pitcher Mark Holliman and Rochester Red Wings infielder Matt Tolbert were selected for their respective league's all-star games to be played in the near future.
