Outfielder Joc Pederson, the Dodgers' No. 2 prospect, left Triple-A Albuquerque's game at Iowa on Tuesday in the first inning with a right shoulder injury.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly couldn't give reporters a diagnosis, but said he was told it wasn't anything major. He said Pederson returned to Albuquerque after the game and would see a doctor on Wednesday.

Pederson was removed after attempting a diving catch while playing center field in the bottom of the first inning.

The 22-year-old Pederson is hitting .319 with 17 homers, 42 RBIs and an OPS of 1.005.

Urias, only 17 out of Mexico and the youngest player on either roster, will play for the World Team. Both players are currently on the Class A Advanced Rancho Cucamonga roster.

Seager, ranked as the Dodgers' top prospect, is hitting .353 with 13 homers and 52 RBIs and a 1.019 OPS. Urias, ranked No. 3, is 1-1 with a 3.35 ERA and 48 strikeouts in 45 2/3 innings.

The SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game, which is now in its 16th year, features the top Minor League prospects competing in a nine-inning contest as part of Taco Bell All-Star Sunday. The U.S. Team, which has won each of the last four contests, leads the all-time series, 9-6.
