Futures Game 2013: Start time, live stream, TV schedule, top prospects and more

Denny Medley-US PRESSWIRE

The MLB Futures Game is Sunday. Here's how you can tune in to check our your favorite prospects, including a pair of Detroit Tigers representatives.

Before the All-Star Break, Major League Baseball highlights some of its top minor-league players during the Futures Game. This year's 15th edition of the game again pits the best prospects of the United States against the best from the rest of the world. The game will be held 2 p.m. ET at Citi Field Sunday and televised on ESPN2. You can also watch a streaming version online via MLB.com or follow along with Gameday. You can listen on MLB Network Radio XM 89.

Quite a few of the game's top prospects will be in attendance, as 24 of Jonathan Mayo's top 100 prospects made the initial cut, although a few were lost to injury, including top prospect Oscar Taveras of the Cardinals. However, a couple of Mayo's top prospects are still scheduled to play: For the U.S., No. 4, pitcher Taijuan Walker of the Mariners organization; No. 8, outfielder Billy Hamilton of the Reds; and No. 10, outfielder Christian Yelich of the Marlins are expected to play. For the World, the No. 9 prospect, third baseman Miguel Sano of the Twins, made the cut.

The Detroit Tigers have two participants of their own: catcher James McCann of Double-A Erie will play for the U.S. team, and Jordan Lennerton (Toledo) will represent the World -- he's Canadian.

However, 2012 Futures Game MVP, Nick Castellanos of the Tigers, will not be present. He made the final fan vote, but was not elected. The U.S. won, 17-5, at Kaufman Stadium in 2012.

The Futures Game is definitely worth watching for anyone who wants to see the next stars of MLB before they arrive -- it's just unfortunate the game is played while MLB games are still going on. But DVR it, if you must, and you should be fine.
