Spokane’s Terry, Arias to start for Northwest League All-Stars

Spokane’s Curtis Terry, one of the Northwest League’s top sluggers, and teammate Diosbel Arias are among the starters as top players from the Northwest League and Pioneer League square off tonight in an All-Star game at Suplizio Field in Grand Junction, Colo.

Terry — whose 36 RBIs, .618 slugging percentage and 89 total bases lead the Northwest League — will start at first base and his teammate Diosbel Arias will be across the diamond at third base.

Other Indians selected for the all-star team are pitchers Hans Crouse and Emmanuel Clase and catcher Francisco Ventura.

The Northwest League roster also features Salem-Keizer’s Joey Bart, one of the top prospects in the San Francisco organization.

After starting the year in the Arizona League, Bart joined Salem-Keizer on July 4, and the No. 2 overall pick has been scorching the ball ever since. He has reached base safely in 18 of his 20 games with the Volcanoes, while amassing 10 multi-hit efforts and a 10-game hitting streak at one point. The catcher is currently hitting .341 with 9 HRs and 27 RBIs.

Tri-City and Spokane lead the way with five representatives each, but the Dust Devils will have three starters. Right-hander Henry Henry takes the ball for the NWL squad after posting the best winning percentage of all hurlers in the circuit at .800 with Tri-City. The 19-year-old is 4-1 with a 2.95 ERA and his 1.22 WHIP ranks fourth in the league.

The game begins at 5:40 p.m. and will be streamed live on
