Gordon, the No. 5 overall pick in the 2014 MLB Draft, will be participating in his first Futures Game, and he'll get the chance to play in the home park of his brother, Dee, the Marlins' starting second baseman.

"He's hitting for power, extra-base hits, on-base percentage," said Dee Gordon, a two-time All-Star. "I definitely will be watching on TV. The good thing is they're ahead of us in time [the Marlins play in San Francisco], so I should be able to at least see a few innings."

Major League Baseball, in conjunction with MLB.com, Baseball America and the 30 Major League clubs, selected the 25 players currently on each team. Charles Johnson will manage the U.S. Team, while Edgar Renteria will manage the World Team.

Reliever J.T. Chargois represented the Twins in last year's Futures Game in San Diego. The World Team snapped a six-game losing streak with an 11-3 win.
