Bregman, a shortstop and third baseman, will be one of the top prospects featured in the game. Set to join Class AAA Fresno later this week after participating in Tuesday night's Texas League All-Star Game, he could debut with the Astros as soon as later this season.

The Astros have not yet announced Bregman's impending promotion to Class AAA, confirmed to The Chronicle by multiple sources familiar with the decision.
