Two Orioles prospects were named to the 2014 All-Star Futures Game as pitcher Hunter Harvey and outfielder Dariel Alvarez were invited to Target Field in Minnesota on Tuesday.

The 19-year-old Harvey was the 22nd overall pick of the 2013 draft and has quickly turned heads in his professional career as he’s posted a 4-4 record with a 2.98 ERA in 13 starts spanning 66 1/3 innings for Single-A Delmarva this season. The right-hander and son of former major league closer Bryan Harvey has struck out 76 batters and walked 28 in his first full season of professional baseball.

Harvey sports a fastball that averages in the low-to-mid 90s and a plus curveball at this early stage of his development.

Meanwhile, the right-handed Alvarez has hit .308 with 12 home runs and 57 RBIs for Double-A Bowie in his first full season with the Orioles. The Cuban outfielder is 25 and was reportedly awarded an $800,000 signing bonus last summer after he defected from Cuba and spent time playing professionally in Mexico.

The Futures Game will take place on July 13 with Harvey playing for the United States team and Alvarez joining the World roster.
