The Royals are well represented at the All-Star Game, and the Omaha Storm Chasers will have a solid contingent at Wednesday’s Class AAA All-Star Game with the addition of infielder Cheslor Cuthbert.

Cuthbert, who made his major league debut last week for the Royals with Mike Moustakas on bereavement leave, will join teammates John Lamb and Louis Coleman in the game that will be played at the Storm Chasers’ park.

Cuthbert, Balbino Fuenmayor and Raul Mondesi Jr., represented Omaha in Sunday’s futures game in Cincinnati .

The Storm Chasers players will represent the Pacific Coast League and be managed by Omaha’s Brian Poldberg.
