Major League Baseball's stars of tomorrow will be on display in the 2014 SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game, which will be played Sunday at 5 p.m. ET at Target Field and air on the MLB Network and MLB.com.
Since its introduction in 1999, the All-Star Futures Game has evolved into the hidden gem of All-Star weekend, as the event offers fans a unique opportunity to watch baseball’s brightest prospects on the same field.
Each year, the event serves as a stepping stone for prospects destined for greatness, as 22 players from last year’s game have already reached the major leagues, including up-and-coming stars such as Gregory Polanco, Yordano Ventura, George Springer, Billy Hamilton and Christian Yelich.
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.
Be sure to check back here at Prospect Pipeline throughout the night, as we'll be breaking down all the performances from the impressive crop of prospects participating in this year's event.
