The MLB All-Star Game is Tuesday night, compiling the best baseball players on the planet on one field, battling for home-field advantage in the World Series.
This past Sunday, however, the major league stars of tomorrow took the field in New York for the MLB Futures Game, which featured the best up-and-coming talent that baseball has to offer.
At least one player from each organization, as selected by the MLB Scouting Bureau, MLB.com and Baseball America, was named to a respective Futures team.
Two Detroit Tigers' prospects earned a spot in the 2013 Futures Game—catcher James McCann for Team USA and first baseman Jordan Lennerton for the World Team.
McCann and Lennerton had two completely different stories leading to their selection to the Futures Game, but both represented the Old English D, and both have hopes to join the Tigers in the major leagues sometime soon.
Team USA defeated the World Team, 4-2, for its fourth straight victory.
Here are the scouting reports, going forward, for the two Tigers' prospects who played in the 2013 MLB Futures Game.
