Former Nacogdoches Central Heights star and current Baltimore Orioles pitching prospect Grayson Rodriguez has been selected to go to the MLB Futures All-Star game.

The game will be held July 7 at Progressive Field in Cleveland, which will host the MLB All-Star Game two days later.

First pitch is set for 7:00 p.m. (ET), and the game will be televised live on MLB Network and streamed online at MLB.com.

Rodriguez was a first-round pick last year for the Orioles and has been named as their No. 1 prospect overall.

He has a 7-1 record with a 2.21 ERA. He has an astounding 78 strikeouts over just 57 innings.

Rodriguez is the first Oriole to make it to the Futures Game in the past five years.
