Given their pedigree, it should come as a simple formality but Dustin Morse with the Twins' PR department tweeted today that the team's top two highest rated prospects - Byron Buxton (USA) and Miguel Sano (World) - will represent the organization in this summer's Futures Game in New York.

Baseball Prospectus just name Buxton the top prospect in the game with Sano five spots behind him at number six, giving the Twins a formidable duo to be on display at Citi Field on Sunday, July 14th.

That's awesome!

How often do guys play more than once? Any chance we see them in the same game next year at TF?

It happens frequently. Kolten Wong and Taijuan Walker will both be playing in their second straight Futures Game this year.
