MINNEAPOLIS -- Before the major league All-Stars take the field for the All-Star Game at Target Field on July 15, some of the game's brightest young players will have the opportunity to play on that same stage. The rosters for the 2014 Sirius XM All-Star Futures Game were announced Tuesday, and a pair of players will represent the Minnesota Twins at next month's game. Pitching prospect Jose Berrios and first baseman Kennys Vargas will both play for the World Team on July 13 at Target Field. Berrios, a native of Puerto Rico, was taken by the Twins in the first round (32nd overall) in the 2012 MLB Draft. In 14 starts for High-A Fort Myers this year, Berrios is 8-2 with a 2.05 ERA. He's also struck out 98 batters and walked just 21 in 83 1/3 innings. Vargas, 23, also hails from Puerto Rico. The 6-foot-5, 275-pound first baseman has shown off his power this year with Double-A New Britain. In 70 games with the Rock Cats in 2014, Vargas has hit 14 homers and driven in 57 runs while batting .318. The switch-hitting Vargas was signed by the Twins as an undrafted free agent in 2009. Several of baseball's best prospects will join Berrios and Vargas at Target Field next month. Highlighting the United States roster is Cubs prospect Kris Bryant, a 22-year-old third baseman who was taken second overall in last year's draft. He's hit 26 home runs between Double-A and Triple-A this season in Chicago's minor league system. Bryant is viewed by many as one of the top 10 prospects in the minors. Lucas Giolito, the Washington Nationals' hard-throwing pitching prospect, is among the biggest names among U.S. pitchers. The 19-year-old Giolito was Washington's first-round pick in 2012 and is currently 2-2 with a 2.59 ERA in 11 starts for High-A Hagerstown. Baseball Prospectus ranked Giolito as the No. 13 prospect in baseball prior to the 2014 season. Other notable prospects playing in this year's game include Houston shortstop Carlos Correa, Cleveland shortstop Jose Lindor and Mets right-hander Noah Syndegaard. In all, a total of 50 players representing all 30 MLB teams will participate in this year's event. The 2014 Futures Game will be managed by two men with Minnesota Twins ties. Former Twins manager Tom Kelly, who led Minnesota to a pair of World Series titles, will manage the United States team, while Hall of Famer and former Twins pitcher Bert Blyleven will be in charge of the World team. Team USA has won the last four Futures Games and is 9-6 overall since the event first took place. The 15th edition of the game will be held at 4 p.m. CT at Target Field in downtown Minneapolis.
