Check out the Fall Stars Game rosters

November 13th, 2021

One of the best things about the Arizona Fall League throughout the season is the opportunity to see future Major League stars before they get there at any given game. On Saturday at the annual Fall Stars Game, many of them will be found on one field at one time.

The 15th edition of the Fall Stars Game will be played tonight at 7 ET/5 MST at Salt River Fields. The two rosters were announced on Tuesday, picked by a combination of scouting and farm directors, AFL staff, and writers. While a handful of players weren't allowed to be chosen due to developmental considerations, the rosters are full of many of the top prospects in baseball. Fans can tune in live on MLB Network, and the MLB app, with Scott Braun, Yonder Alonso and Jonathan Mayo handling the call.

• Complete rosters: East | West

A total of seven players from MLB Pipeline’s Top 100 Prospects list will be on the field, giving the event a Futures Game kind of feel. The East has a slight 4-3 advantage, including having three in the top 50:

Triston Casas, 1B, Red Sox (No. 18)
Gabriel Moreno, C, Blue Jays (No. 32)
Brett Baty, 3B/OF, Mets (No. 45)
JJ Bleday, OF, Marlins (No. 71)

Nick Gonzales, 2B/SS, Pirates (No. 62)
Bobby Miller, RHP, Dodgers (No. 78)
Bryson Stott, SS, Phillies (No. 97)

Two prospects were added via the Fall Stars Final 2 Vote, in which fans selected one additional player for each Fall Stars team by voting online.

The comparison to the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game isn’t far-fetched. Baty, Stott and the Rockies’ Ryan Vilade are both Futures Gamers fans will see in action this Saturday. And Rockies' Michael Togilia defeated fellow Futures Gamers Luciano and Red Sox infielder Jeter Downs in the East Final 2 Vote to become the fourth Futures Game alum.

The Fall Stars Game is often a predictor of things to come. The 2019 exhibition, the last time the game was played, included the Phillies’ Alec Bohm, who finished second in NL Rookie of the Year voting the following year, as well as 2021 rookie contributors like Reds catcher Tyler Stephenson, Angels outfielder Brandon Marsh, Royals lefty Daniel Lynch, Red Sox outfielder Jarren Duran and a trio of Rays -- Shane Baz, Vidal Brujan and Josh Lowe -- who all helped Tampa reach the postseason. The 2018 game featured Mets slugger Pete Alonso, who hit 53 homers the following year and won NL Rookie of the Year honors, as well as Blue Jays young star Vladimir Guerrero Jr., among others. The game has been a showcase for future All-Stars like Mike Trout, Ronald Acuña Jr. and Corey Seager.
