MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Major League Baseball announced its SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game rosters for the World and USA and Biscuits fans will recognize one of their own on the USA roster.

Biscuits first baseman Nate Lowe will suit up for Team USA in the 20th annual All-Star Futures Game July 15 at Nationals Park.

Every year the event brings the game's best prospects on the diamond from all 30 organizations and showcases them the Sunday before the MLB All-Star Game. Lowe, though he has shined in the Rays farm system, is not listed as one of the top prospects for the Rays organization, which speaks even more to the work he has put in.

The Mississippi State product has spent the 2018 season between Class High-A Charlotte and Class-AA Montgomery. With the two clubs, Lowe has hit for a .350 avg, slugged 16 homers and driven in 68 runs. With the Butter and Blue alone, Lowe has appeared in 24 games and already hit 6 home runs and driven in 24 in just 89 at-bats.

Lowe spoke with WSFA Sports Director Stephen Gunter and talked about where some of his success has come from.

"Realizing that it is OK for me to hit the ball up in the air again has been a big key for me," said Lowe. "Getting the freedom to be able to drive the ball in the air a little more really opened up for me to hit those big fly balls that transition to home runs."

Lowe was a 13th round selection back in the 2016 draft by the Tampa Bay Rays--the Biscuits' Major League affiliate. His brother Josh was also drafted by the Rays in 2016. Josh Lowe was a first-round selection and is in High-A ball with Nate's former team, the Charlotte Stone Crabs.

    To say the Biscuits are streaking would be an understatement. They're red hot. They've won 11 of their last 12 games and moved from the bottom cellar of the Southern League North Division into a half game back of first place.
