Cubs outfield prospect Tyler Colvin is one of 24 players from minor league baseball that will represent the United States in the 2007 International Baseball Federation World Cup, Nov. 6-18, in Chinese Taipei.

Colvin, 22, batted .299 with 35 doubles, 16 home runs and 81 RBIs in 125 games between Class High A Daytona and Class AA Tennessee this past season.

The Cubs selected the outfielder with their first-round pick (13th overall) from Clemson University in 2006.

Colvin agreed to participate for Team USA in late August.

“I think it’s going to be a very good experience for me,” Colvin told back in August. “It’s just a good experience for me to go out there and get more experience and playing time in the off-season.”

The USA team will be managed by Davey Johnson.
