New York Yankees prospects Dillon Tate and Gleyber Torres have been selected to the Arizona Fall League All-Star roster.

Oh, look! More evidence that the future of the New York Yankees is bright as ever!

Thanks to an indisputable tear in the Arizona Fall League, top infield prospect Gleyber Torres, and young pitching stud Dillon Tate have been selected to represent the Yankees in this year’s AFL All-Star game.

Both prospects were acquired this season when general manager Brian Cashman shipped Aroldis Chapman to Chicago and Carlos Beltran to Texas.

Through 10 games, Torres is slashing .306/.405/.611 with an OPS of 1.016 and three home runs. In 36 at-bats, the 19-year-old Venezuelan totaled 22 bases, tied for the most in the league with at least 10 games played.

Torres also had this moonshot to add to his highlight reel:

Tate, the fourth overall pick in the 2015 June Amateur Draft, has struck out 11 in 9.1 innings of work this Fall while walking just one.

With an MLB ETA of 2017, the right-hander is looking to make a quick jump from the minors to the pros and this offseason demonstration could do the trick. In a mere 17.1 innings in Charleston in 2016, Tate sent down 15 batters via strikeout and only allowed one home run.

The East will face the West on Saturday, November 5 at 8:08 p.m. ET. Check out the rosters and game info by clicking here.
