NEW YORK -- A's prospect Renato Nunez has been named to the World roster for the 16th annual XM All-Star Futures Game, to be played July 13 at Minnesota's Target Field.

The organization is not represented on the U.S. roster.

Nunez, a third baseman ranked by MLB.com as the club's No. 6 prospect, entered the day batting .272 with 12 home runs and 39 RBIs through 65 games for Class A Advanced Stockton.
