Sano and Buxton will represent Twins at Futures Game

This afternoon, MLB announced the rosters of the Futures Game, which will be played on July 14th, two days before the All-Star Game in New York. The Twins will have one player on the World team and one player on the USA team. It likely will come as no surprise that Miguel Sano (Dominican Republic) will be playing on the World team and Byron Buxton (Georgia, USA) will play for the US team.

Last year, Oswaldo Arcia was the lone Twins representative. He hit a double in the game against Pirates pitching prospect Jameson Taillon. [PRBREAK][/PRBREAK]

Buxton, the Twins' first overall pick in 2012 out of high school, was promoted to Ft. Myers on Sunday after hitting .341/.431/.559 (.990) with 15 doubles, ten triples and eight homers in Cedar Rapids. He drove in 55 runs from the leadoff spot and scored 68 runs. He also stole 32 bases.

Sano, the highly-touted Dominican third baseman, hit .330/.424/.655 (1.079) with 15 doubles, two triples, 16 home runs and 48 RBI with the Miracle before being promoted to New Britain two weeks ago. He has now hit three home runs (and has three triples) in seven games with the Rock Cats.

Buxton and Sano are consensus number one prospects in all of baseball and good representatives of the organization.

In other All Star news today, the Eastern League announced its all-stars that will play in New Britain in mid-July. Catcher Josmil Pinto, outfielder Danny Ortiz, shortstop Danny Santana, reliever AJ Achter and starting pitcher Trevor May were named to the roster.

This comes after the Cedar Rapids Kernels and Ft. Myers Miracle each sent nearly double-figure players to the Midwest League and Florida State League All-Star games, respectively.

The future sure looks bright!
