Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports
Miguel Sano's power will be on display this Sunday in the SiriusXM Futures Game.

Since it’s introduction in 1999, the Sirius XM All-Star Futures Game has evolved into the hidden gem of All-Star weekend.

The event offers fans a unique opportunity to watch baseball’s brightest prospects on the same field.

In fact, 22 of the 50 players selected to participate for either the U.S. or World Team recently appeared in Prospect Pipeline’s Midseason Top 50 Prospects, including nine who are ranked within the top 10.

Each year the event serves as a stepping stone for prospects destined for greatness in the major leagues. Among all the players chosen to play in the 2012 All-Star Game, 30 were alumni of the Futures Game.

Though some of the younger players are in the early stages of development, a majority of the participants in this year’s game are within striking distance of the major leagues and could potentially debut before the end of the season.

Here’s a look at 10 Futures Game prospects who are poised to make an impact in the major leagues by 2014.

 

The 15th annual SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game will take place at 2 p.m. ET on Sunday, July 14, at Citi Field in New York. The game can be seen live on MLB.com and ESPN2.
