Two Rays pitchers are among the game's top prospects gathered for this afternoon's Futures Game at Citi Field in New York.

LHP Enny Romero, currently starring for Double-A Montgomery is set to work the second inning for the World team. Romero said he was surprised to be picked for the game for a second straight year, and is focused on getting to the big leagues.

LHP C.J. Riefenhauser is in line to work the eighth inning, subject to slight change, for the U.S. team. Riefenhauser, a 20th round pick in 2010, is one of the lowest-round players picked, and is obviously thriilled to be here - even better since he grew up less than an hour away and will have 90 friends and relatives in the stands.
