There have been more than a few big-name prospects in the Florida State League this season, and many of them will take the field together June 14 at Bradenton's McKechnie Field in the Class A Advanced circuit's All-Star Game.

Bradenton outfielder Josh Bell, who checks in as MLB.com's No. 62 overall prospect, might be the most prominent name to take his home field a week from Saturday. The 21-year-old switch-hitter owns a .308/.354/.466 slash line with five homers and 34 RBIs in 53 games with the Pirates. He'll be joined in the South Division outfield by Mets No. 4 prospect and 2011 first-rounder Brandon Nimmo, who is enjoying a bit of a breakout season in St. Lucie with a .325/.449/.460 line for St. Lucie.

MLB.com's No. 77 prospect and Fort Myers right-hander Jose Berrios (5-2, 2.24 ERA) leads the South Division pitching staff that also includes Bradenton left-hander Orlando Castro, who tops the circuit with a 0.92 WHIP through 11 appearances.

On the North Division squad, Blue Jays affiliate Dunedin placed a league-high seven players on the roster. The most notable is without a doubt No. 4 Toronto prospect and MLB.com's No. 99 overall prospect Daniel Norris. The 21-year-old left-hander leads the FSL with a 1.12 ERA through 11 starts (56 1/3 innings) to go with 66 strikeouts and a 1.05 WHIP in that time. He trails only right-handed teammate and fellow All-Star Taylor Cole (82) in punchouts.

Catcher Derrick Chung, infielder K.C. Hobson, outfielder Dalton Pompey and outfielder Dwight Smith Jr. form the rest of the Jays contingent. Right-handed reliever Arik Sikula, who still leads the league with 15 saves, was officially named to the squad but will not play after being promoted to Double-A New Hampshire last week.
