Major League Baseball announced the rosters for its Futures Game last week, the annual “prospect All-Star Game” which takes place the Sunday before the All-Star Game itself. We’ve made a page on THE BOARD specifically for the Futures Game representatives. It has tool grades, scouting reports, video, and other stuff with which you can play around.
There may be some discrepancies between the player evaluations on this page and those that appear elsewhere on THE BOARD. The grades on the Futures Game section of THE BOARD represent our most current evaluations of these players. The evaluations on the team lists, meanwhile, will be updated altogether shortly in the future. Kiley and I will be in Washington D.C. a week from now to see these guys in person. The Futures Game is Sunday, July 15 in Washington D.C.
