Ervin Santana and Jeff Mathis, Angels prospects at Class A Rancho Cucamonga whom I mentioned a few weeks ago, have both been selected to play in the "Futures Game" during All-Star weekend, intended to be a peek at each organization's most promising minor leaguers. Santana and Mathis will be the only Angels representatives (a total of 50 players make the two teams, so that's actually slightly higher than average). The game is on Sunday, July 13, starting - I think - at 4:00 central time. Santana and Mathis will be on opposing teams, since the format for the game is U.S.-born players versus foreign-born players.
