Frankie Montas to represent White Sox in All-Star Futures Game

Fresh off a seven-inning no-hitter against the Cubs' Double-A affiliate, White Sox prospect Frankie Montas is continuing to get recognized around baseball.

On Thursday, Montas was named to the World roster for the 2015 SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game. The game will take place on July 12 at 2:00 p.m. in Cincinnati. 

Montas, 22, has started 12 games in Double-A with the Birmingham Barons, going 1-1 with a 2.55 ERA and 48 strikeouts over 60 innings.

The right-hander was acquired by the White Sox in 2013 in a three-way trade deadline deal that saw Jake Peavy go to the Boston Red Sox, Jose Iglesias go to the Detroit Tigers and Avisail Garcia also come to the White Sox.

Montas was scheduled to be on the World roster last year but an injury kept him out of the game. Second baseman Micah Johnson was the team's representative at last year's game. 

White Sox Triple-A manager Joel Skinner will be part of the U.S. team coaching staff.

White Sox Talk Podcast on The Three Amigos: Jimenez, Robert and Adolfo

The White Sox three outfield prospects are creating a lot of buzz at spring training.

On this edition of the podcast, Micker Adolfo tells Chuck Garfien about a conversation they all had about one day becoming the starting outfield for the White Sox. Adolfo talks about his longtime friendship with Eloy Jimenez, his impressions of Luis Robert, Luis Basabe and the White Sox future.

But first, it's a conversation with MLB.com's Jesse Sanchez who has great insight on many of the White Sox players: Jimenez, Robert, Yoan Moncada and Jose Abreu. He tells an amazing story about why Jimenez decided to sign with the Cubs when he was a teenager, how much Abreu is revered in Cuba and much more.
