LIVE on Peacock: Futures Game showcasing top talent

July 16th, 2022

Lights, camera, prospect action!

The 2022 SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game is underway at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, with 50 of the game’s top Minor Leaguers on the field together in baseball’s best prospect showcase.

How to watch
The game is streaming live on Peacock, with Scott Braun (play-by-play), Yonder Alonso, MLB Pipeline’s own Jim Callis (analyst) and A.J. Andrews (reporter) at the mics. A replay will also be aired Sunday at 9 a.m. ET on MLB Network. SiriusXM will carry the radio broadcast live for all subscribers.

Prospects have been split into American League and National League sides. The game first switched from a US vs. World format in 2019, and the NL has yet to lose since, going 1-0-1, including a 2-2 tie in 2019. The exhibition will be seven innings, so prepare for premium stuff from pitchers trying to show off in brief appearances.

Top prospects to watch
Twenty-eight of MLB Pipeline’s Top 100 prospects are in La La Land this weekend. The NL has the advantage in that tally with 17 Top 100 representatives, compared to 10 on the AL side.

Five of our top eight overall talents are present on the Futures Game roster, and the only three missing are either injured or have Major League experience.

All five members of the National League outfield (Corbin Carroll, Jackson Chourio, Pete Crow-Armstrong, Robert Hassell III, Joey Wiemer) and each of its three catchers (Francisco Álvarez, Diego Cartaya, Logan O‘Hoppe) are featured on the Top 100, making those the most loaded position groups this year.

The AL is at its deepest when it comes to pitching. Taj Bradley, Jack Leiter, Ricky Tiedemann and Ken Waldichuk give the junior circuit four Top 100 arms.

Here are the 10 best overall prospects expected to take the field at Dodger Stadium, along with info on their current Minor League club and expected arrivals in the bigs:

No. 2 Francisco Álvarez, C, ETA: 2023 (Triple-A Syracuse, Mets)
No. 3 Corbin Carroll, OF, ETA: 2023 (Triple-A Reno, D-backs)
No. 5 Gunnar Henderson, SS/3B, ETA: 2023 (Triple-A Norfolk, Orioles)
No. 7 Jordan Walker, 3B, ETA: 2023 (Double-A Springfield, Cardinals)
No. 8 Anthony Volpe, SS, ETA: 2023 (Double-A Somerset, Yankees)
No. 12 Jordan Lawlar, SS, ETA: 2024 (Single-A Visalia, D-backs)
No. 13 Diego Cartaya, C, ETA: 2023 (High-A Great Lakes, Dodgers)
No. 15 Eury Pérez, RHP, ETA: 2023 (Double-A Pensacola, Marlins)
No. 16 Jack Leiter, RHP, ETA: 2023 (Double-A Frisco, Rangers)
No. 22 Zac Veen, OF, ETA: 2023 (High-A Spokane, Rockies)

Managers and coaches
Mike Scioscia is in the dugout for the National League. He may be best known for having been skipper for 19 years with the Angels, whom he led to a World Series title in 2002, but he spent all 13 of his seasons as a Major League catcher in Dodger blue. Kenny Landreaux (bench), Dan Haren (pitching), Shawn Green (hitting), Eric Davis (first base), Matt Tuiasosopo (third base) and Cesar Ramos make up the rest of the NL coaching staff.

The American League is led by three-time All-Star and 2007 NL MVP Jimmy Rollins, who returns to Los Angeles after spending the 2015 season with the Dodgers. Rollins has help from Jerry Manuel (bench), Edwin Jackson (pitching), Adrián Beltré (hitting), Garry Matthews Jr. (first base), Ryan Newman (third base) and Dan Otero (bullpen) as the remaining AL coaches.

Which Futures Gamers are on the cusp of the Majors
No one on either of the active Futures Game rosters has seen the big leagues yet. “Yet” is the key word there because many are knocking on the door and could get that elusive call in the second half of the 2022 season. Here are some Futures Gamers who could be Major League options soon:

C Francisco Álvarez, No. 1 Mets
RHP Taj Bradley, No. 1 Rays
RHP Hunter Brown, No. 1 Astros
OF Corbin Carroll, No. 1 D-backs
INF Gunnar Henderson, No. 2 Orioles
C Shea Langeliers, No. 1 Athletics
INF Curtis Mead, No. 2 Rays
INF Spencer Steer, No. 7 Twins
INF Miguel Vargas, No. 5 Dodgers
INF Mark Vientos, No. 5 Mets
LHP Ken Waldichuk, No. 5 Yankees
OF Matt Wallner, No. 8 Twins

Who is missing out
There has been a decent amount of turnover on this year’s rosters. Cade Cavalli (finger), Henry Davis (wrist) and Ezequiel Tovar (groin) each needed to be replaced due to injury, while Brayan Bello, Nick Pratto and David Villar were swapped out because of their respective Major League statuses. (Bello has since returned to the Minors but still isn't in L.A.)
