Joc Pederson is the first Dodgers outfielder to play for the United States team in the Futures Game, which began play in 1999.

There is still one game remaining before the All-Star break, but the festivities get underway on Sunday. No, I'm not talking about the celebrity softball game, but rather the 2013 MLB Futures Game. The annual showcase of many of the top prospects in baseball will take place at Citi Field on Sunday afternoon, with Joc Pederson representing the Dodgers.

Pederson is on the United States roster, and will start in left field and bat sixth.

He has hit .296/.386/.516 with 19 doubles, 14 home runs and 60 runs scored in 83 games this season four Double-A Chattanooga, and has stolen 26 stolen bases in 29 attempts. Pederson was sidelined for eight days by an oblique injury but returned to the Lookouts on Friday night.

Pederson on Saturday tweeted that he was "honored to be in NY to represent the @Dodgers in the @MLBFutures game."

The Futures Game will start at 11 a.m. PT and will be televised by ESPN2. The game can also be watched online at either MLB.com or Watch ESPN.

Pederson is just the fourth Dodgers outfielder to take part in the Futures Game, which began in 1999. The previous outfielders - Chin-Feng Chen (1999, 2000), Franklin Gutierrez (2003) and Alfredo Silverio (2011) - all played for the World roster, while Pederson is on the U.S. roster.

Chin-lung Hu won the 2007 Futures Game MVP when he had two hits, two RBI, a stolen base and a run scored for the World team in a 7-2 win over the U.S. squad. Here is a look at the Dodgers participants in every year of the event:
