DENVER -- Rockies shortstop prospect Rosell Herrera will represent the organization in the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game during All-Star Weekend in Minneapolis on July 13.

Rosters were announced Tuesday on MLB Network's "The Rundown" and MLB.com. The nine-inning game, in its 16th year, will feature a U.S. squad against a World squad and will be televised by MLB Network for the first time.

Herrera, 21, is considered a future leadoff hitter. He is batting .276 with a .315 on-base percentage at Class A Advanced Modesto. He has two home runs and 16 RBIs.

Last year, Herrera, listed at 6-foot-3, 190 pounds, batted .343 with a .419 on-base percentage at Class A Asheville. He also received a long look during Spring Training as the Rockies gave veteran Troy Tulowitzki ample rest.
