Detroit Tigers

If you want to see the future of Major League Baseball on one field at one time, you won’t want to miss the 2022 SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game.

The seven-inning American vs. National League game will take place at Dodger Stadium on Saturday, July 16 at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT. It will be broadcast live on Peacock and SiriusXM, with MLB Network producing the telecast and re-airing the game starting at 8:30 p.m. ET. Scott Braun (play-by-play), Yonder Alonso (analyst), Jim Callis (analyst) and A.J. Andrews (reporter) will be on the call.

On Thursday, Major League Baseball revealed the rosters for this year’s game. A total of 31 of the 50 players on the rosters are currently ranked on MLB Pipeline’s Top 100 Prospects list. That includes five of the top 10: Mets catcher Francisco Álvarez (No. 2), D-backs outfielder Corbin Carroll (No. 3), Orioles infielder Gunnar Henderson (No. 5), Cardinals third baseman Jordan Walker (No. 7) and Yankees shortstop Anthony Volpe (No. 8).

There are plenty of other top hitting prospects heading to Los Angeles, including catchers Diego Cartaya (No. 15) of the Dodgers and Henry Davis (No. 19) of the Pirates, outfielders Zac Veen (No. 24) from the Rockies and Robert Hassell III (No. 25) from the Padres. The AL will have hitters like A’s catcher Shea Langeliers (No. 33), Guardians outfielder George Valera (No. 34) and Yankees outfielder Jasson Dominguez (No. 41).

The pitching staffs are stacked as well. The NL is led by the Marlins’ Eury Pérez (No. 17), Giants lefty Kyle Harrison (No. 27) and Dodgers right-hander Bobby Miller (No. 28). Rangers righty Jack Leiter (No. 18), the Rays’ Taj Bradley (No. 35) and Brayan Bello (No. 46) of the Red Sox are slated to be a part of the AL staff.

The teams feature a combined 13 former first-round picks (nine on NL; four on AL), one CB-A selection, six second-rounders, three third-rounders, two fourth-rounders, three fifth-rounders, one 10th-rounder, two 11th-rounders and one 23rd-round selection. Davis and Leiter were the top two picks in last year’s Draft. Additionally, three of the top nine selections from the 2020 Draft are featured among the selections, including Seattle’s Emerson Hancock (No. 6 overall), Hassell (No. 8 overall) and Veen (No. 9).

Four players who have participated in Development Programs led by MLB and USA Baseball are featured on the Futures rosters, including Darren Baker (Breakthrough Series); Bradley (Breakthrough Series, Elite Development Invitational, Hank Aaron Invitational, Dream Series); Hassell (High School Home Run Derby) and Walker (Breakthrough Series, Dream Series).

Two players — Boston’s Brayan Bello and San Francisco’s David Villar — were promoted to their respective Major League teams this week, and if necessary, will be replaced in the coming days, in addition to any other players who may be injured or promoted to the Majors.

The two squads combined for 17 internationally born players representing six different countries and territories outside the 50 United States. The Dominican Republic is represented by six players, followed by five players from Venezuela, three players from Cuba, and one apiece from Australia, Canada and Curaçao.

Two-time World Series champion with the Los Angeles Dodgers and World Series-winning skipper Mike Scioscia will manage the NL Futures squad, while fellow World Series champion and 2007 NL Most Valuable Player Jimmy Rollins will be at the helm in the AL dugout.
