Alexander: Which Cal League All-Stars will become big league stars? – Press Enterprise

Consider: From that 2015 Cal League-Carolina League game, 10 players out of the 42 who played in it were in the big leagues at last look. Bellinger, of course, but also pitchers Ryan McMahon (Rockies), Zack Godley (Diamondbacks), Paul Fry (Orioles), Tyler Beede (Giants) and Nick Pivetta (Phillies), catchers Kyle Farmer (Reds, also part of the Puig trade) and Omar Narvaez (Mariners) and infielders Jack Mayfield (Astros) and Johan Camargo (Braves). Twelve others have had one or several cups of coffee in the big leagues.
And the crazy thing about that game, a 9-2 California victory? Bellinger was 1 for 4 with two RBIs. Quakes teammate Brandon Trinkwon was 2 for 3 with three runs scored and two RBIs and was named the game’s MVP.

Two years later, the Dodgers released Trinkwon, and he’s now out of baseball.
