The 2013 MLB All-Star Futures game will take place tomorrow at Citi Field. On the field will be some of the best and brightest young stars in the game in what should be a preview of future MLB All-Star games to come.
We have already seen a number of players from the 2012 Futures game break into the big leagues. That list of players includes the likes of Manny Machado, Gerrit Cole, Jurickson Profar, Zack Wheeler and Wil Myers.
Oddly enough, none of those players were named the MVP of last year's contest. The 2012 MVP was Detroit Tigers prospect Nick Castellanos. Castellanos has yet to crack the big league roster, in fact, he won't even be playing in tomorrow's All-Star Game. He was a vote-in candidate for the final roster spot, but was beat out by Brandon Nimmo, the hometown favorite.
With last year's MVP watching from home, here is a short list of players that have a shot to take home this year's honors.
