Pax to the Future
Not even two full days since his 2011 Midwest League All-Star appearance and already another big honor for left-hander James Paxton. MLB announced the 2011 XM Satellite Radio All-Star Futures Games rosters today, and K-Pax is on the World team. He’s just the second active LumberKings’ player to ever be named to a Futures Game, joining third-baseman John Whittleman (’07 in San Francisco).

I’ll attempt to get a Paxton reaction in interview form within the next few days.
