Third-Annual AFL Rising Stars Rosters

The Arizona Fall League’s third-annual Rising Stars game will take place tomorrow night (Friday Oct. 24). The players were split into two teams, as chosen by scouting and minor-league directors for all MLB organizations.

Although this is only the third year, the Rising Stars game has already served as a sneak preview for MLB’s future stars. The inaugural game featured players like Ryan Braun (Brewers), Troy Tulowitzki (Rockies), Yunel Escobar (Braves), Jacoby Ellsbury (Red Sox), Kevin Kouzmanoff (Padres) and Hunter Pence (Astros). Last year, the game featured Max Scherzer (Diamondbacks), Travis Snider (Blue Jays), Jed Lowrie (Red Sox), Jeff Clement (Mariners) and Dexter Fowler (Rockies).
