Two Rays minor-leaguers will get a chance to participate in All-Star Week at Citi Field this July.
Rays pitchers Taylor Guerrieri and Enny Romero were among the players named to this year's All-Star Futures Game, taking place Sunday, July 14th in New York. Guerrieri has been named to the U.S. roster, while Romero has been picked to the World team.
This marks the second time that Romero, currently with the Rays Double-A affiliate in Montgomery, has been named to the Futures Game. The left-hander was also selected to the World roster last season. He joins outfielders Desmond Jennings, Delmon Young, and B.J. Upton as the only Rays players to be named to multiple Futures Game rosters. Romero is currently 6-3 with a 3.14 earned run average in 15 starts with the Biscuits.
Guerrieri, currently with Tampa Bay's class-A affiliate in Bowling Green, is 5-2 with a 2.29 earned run average in 12 starts with the Hot Rods. The 20-year-old was the Rays first pick in the 2011 draft, 24th overall.
