AFL Rising Stars Rosters

The World Series will be over by Saturday, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be any baseball on TV. Set your TiVo for 8:15 p.m. ET on Saturday, Nov. 7 on MLB Network, and you can watch the fourth-annual Arizona Fall League’s Rising Stars Game.

The teams are split up by AFL divisions. The East team will have players from the Mesa Solar Sox (Angels, Cubs, Marlins, Red Sox and Twins), Phoenix Desert Dogs (Athletics, Blue Jays, Nationals, Orioles and Rays) and Scottsdale Scorpions (Giants, Diamondbacks, Phillies, Pirates and Rockies). The West team will be comprised of players from the Peoria Javelinas (Brewers, Dodgers, Mariners, Tigers and White Sox), Peoria Saguaros (Astros, Braves, Indians, Padres and Reds) and the Surprise Rafters (Cardinals, Mets, Rangers, Royals and Yankees).

The game is arguably as loaded with talent as the Futures Game and the scheduled starting pitchers are two first rounders: Nationals righthander, and first-overall pick, Stephen Strasburg will take the hill for the East squad and Braves lefthander Mike Minor will toe the rubber for the West.

Several young major leaguers have appeared in previous Rising Stars games, including White Sox third baseman Gordon Beckham, Brewers third baseman Ryan Braun, Red Sox center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury, Braves shortstop Yunel Escobar, Braves righthander Tommy Hanson, Yankees righthander Phil Hughes, Astros right fielder Hunter Pence and Orioles catcher Matt Wieters.

MLB Network will also broadcast the AFL championship game on Saturday, Nov. 21 at 2:35 p.m. ET.

Here are the complete rosters for the Rising Stars Game.
