Casella @ CWS:

As some fans continue to wonder when Dayan Viciedo will be called up from Triple-A Charlotte, it was announced on Thursday that he, along with teammate Gregory Infante, will play on the World team and represent the White Sox in this year’s XM All-Star Futures Game at Chase Field in Phoenix.

Viciedo, the White Sox No. 1 prospect per MLB.com, has the International League’s fourth-highest batting average, at .324. The third baseman/outfielder has slugged 11 home runs and is third in the league in RBIs, with 49. He also played in the 2009 Futures Game, going 1-for-2 with an RBI double.

With the White Sox offense struggling to find consistency this season, the question of calling up Viciedo to the Majors has been posed to both general manager Ken Williams and manager Ozzie Guillen, especially over the past couple of weeks. Guillen, however, while acknowledging Viciedo’s success and talent, simply wouldn’t know who to replace on the current 25-man roster to make room for the 22-year-old. …

Here Ozzie.

UPDATE: Reifert:

OF Dayan Viciedo (Cuba) and RHP Gregory Infante (Venezuela), both at Class AAA Charlotte, have been selected to play for the International team in this year’s All-Star Futures Game on Sunday, July 10, at Pheonix’s Chase Field.

The 13th annual Futures Game can be seen live on MLB.TV and ESPN2, and can be followed live on MLB.com’s Gameday.  Game time is 5 pm CT.

Current Sox Mark Buehrle, John Danks, Gavin Floyd, Edwin Jackson, Adam Dunn, Brent Lillibridge, Alex Rios and Ramon Castro appeared in the game.
