Two big pieces of the Twins’ future — Byron Buxton and Miguel Sano — will participate in the All-Star Futures Game next month in New York.

Major League Baseball released the rosters Wednesday for the July 14 game, and they included Buxton, an outfielder, and Sano, a third baseman — the Twins’ two top prospects and two of the best in all of baseball. Buxton will play for the U.S. team; Sano, from the Dominican Republic, will be on the World team roster.

The game will take place at 1 p.m. at Citi Field.

Buxton, 19, was drafted in 2012 with the second overall pick and has dominated in his first full professional season. He batted .341 with eight home runs and 55 RBI in 68 games at Class A Cedar Rapids before being promoted on Sunday to Class A Fort Myers.

MLB.com ranked him as the 18th-best prospect at the start of the season, but ESPN’S Keith Law ranked him No. 2 last month. On Tuesday, www.baseballprospectus.com ranked him No. 1 in all of baseball.

Before Buxton, there was Sano, whom the Twins signed for $3.1 million in 2009.

Sano, 20, has displayed some of the best power in all of minor league baseball. In 56 games at Fort Myers, Sano batted .330 with 16 homers and 48 RBI before being promoted to Class AA New Britain this month.
