New York Mets prospects Amed Rosario and Tomas Nido have been selected to play in the 2017 All-Star Futures Game. The game is July 9 at Marlins Park in Miami.

Rosario, 21, who is regarded by some as the top prospect in baseball, will be playing in his second straight Futures Game. Rosario went 1 for 2 and scored a run for Team World in 2016.

Rosario is hitting .315/.356/.468 with 15 doubles, six triples, career high seven home runs, 49 RBIs and 13 steals in 76 games this year for the Triple-A Las Vegas 51s.

Earlier this week, Rosario was selected to start at shortstop for the Pacific Coast League in the Triple-A All-Star Game

Nido, 23, was ranked as the Mets no. 9 prospect according to Baseball America coming into the 2017 season. He has hit .254/.293/.392 with 12 doubles, five home runs and 33 RBIs in 54 games for the Double-A Binghamton Rumble Ponies.

Nido was selected to play in the Eastern League All-Star Game earlier this week.

Both Rosario and Nido will be playing for the World team that also includes top prospects Yoan Moncada (CWS), Francisco Mejia (CLE), Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (TOR) and Rafael Devers (BOS). The team will be managed by Edgar Renteria.

Here is the full World Roster and here is the full USA roster.

    I love seeing the elite prospects on the same field at the same time because it gives you a chance to see how they really stack against their true peers. Some of them demonstrate that they truly belong in this class, while others get exposed as being a notch below.
