Scranton/Wilkes-Barre catcher Gary Sanchez,El Paso outfielder Hunter Renfroe and El Pasothird baseman Carlos Asuaje all played in Sunday’s MLB All-Star Futures Game in San Diego.It’s been Anthony DeSclafani Jersey a long travel journey, but it’s been a lot of fun, Renfroe, who is hitting .335 with 21 home runs and 76 RBIs for the San Diego Padres’ top farm club, told Omnisport on Tuesday. We’re spending our off-days playing baseball. Any time you can play baseball, it’s fun, so I’ll have a good time.Sanchez arrived in Charlotte on Tuesday night and mi sed the afternoon’s practice. Renfroe and Asuaje were in Albuquerque on July 6, went with the Chihuahuas to Salt Lake City the next day before leaving for San Diego last Friday and left for Charlotte on Monday.It hit me (Monday), Renfroe said of the travel fatigue. But I really wanted to come here and see this ballpark. I’ve never been to Charlotte before.Asuaje, who’s hitting .323, and Renfroe will join their El Paso teammates in Nashville on Thursday.We’re having the most fun as po sible. You might only get this opportunity once in a lifetime, Asuaje said Tuesday. We’re trying to make the most of it.It’s a lot of travel, but you get up for it. I’ll be more tired (Tuesday) than I will be (Wednesday). Once you see the crowd, you get a little bit of adrenaline, you don’t even feel it.Because it’s mostly out of their control, the players in Charlotte say they don’t think about if or when they might get called up. Each player who spoke with Omnisport stre sed the importance of staying consistent at the Triple-A level.MORE: Yankees prospect suspended for insubordinationIt’s validation that you’ve been playing well, Asuaje said of his all-star selection. Getting recognized and honored as an all-star here and at the Futures Game, it’s one of those things where you’ve got to take a step back and realize you’ve accomplished a lot, but there’s still a lot left to go.If I keep doing what I’m doing, hopefully I’ll get that opportunity. We’ve all been having great seasons, so hopefully we get an opportunity soon.After being selected to the Double-A Southern League All-Star Game in 2014 while with the Mi si sippi Braves, James Hoyt was promoted to Triple-A Gwinnett. Now with the Astros’top farm,the Fresno Grizzlies, he hopes another promotion is in store after his Triple-A all-star selection.Whatever is going to happen there in the front office in Houston, I know I’m ready, Hoyt, who has 22 saves and a 1.87 ERA for the Grizzlies,told Omnisport. I’m ready to pitch in the big leagues and I hope it’s in Houston. Whatever is out of my hands is out of my hands. All I look forward to is pitching and helping us win games. If it’s in Fresno, it’s in Fresno. If it’s in Houston, it’s in Houston.There comes a time where you’re just dominating the league and it’s almost expected. I feel like it’s time, but it’s out of my hands. I’ll just do my job in Triple A and continue to progre s as a pitcher. That’s all I can do.SCOUTING REPORT: Dodgers prospect Brock StewartWhile nobody nece sarily wants to remain in Triple-A long enough to get multiple all-star bids, Buffalo Bisons first baseman Jesus Montero will play in his fourth Triple-A All-Star Game. Montero, who has played in 226 major leaguegames since 2011 with the Yankees and Mariners, enjoys the all-star experience with his family. He’d be OK if he doesn’t play in a fifth, though.It’s one of the goals I set every year, but obviously I want to get to the big leagues, Montero, who’s hitting .310 with 11 homers and 52 RBIs, said. It hasn’t come yet, but I’m really happy to get another shot.Everybody wants to get to the bigs, obviously, but I just try to have fun. It’s part of the job.Playing in the 2016 Triple-A All-Star Game is nice, but as Columbus Clippers pitcher Shawn Armstrong said, nobody in Charlotte wants to be in Tacoma for next year’s game:That is absolutely the truth.
