All Star Futures Game Live

If you're an entrepreneur, you've probably dreamed of building a company that's as big and prosperous as Disney, Netflix, or Amazon. But building an internet company to rival what Silicon Valley is famous for has never been easy. For example, while it's easy to stumble upon profitability and audience in the early days, scaling up has never been a walk in the park.

However, this year’s edition of the Futures Game promises to be a good one with some of baseball’s best prospects, including Jasson Dominguez, Adley Rutschman, and Brett Baty. The Futures Games will be only seven innings unlike the MLB All-Star Game, which is a full nine innings. Also, this will be the second time that the format will be the National League vs. the American League. This change happened in 2019 after the teams used to be split up into Team USA and Team World.

Conversely, I don’t know the NL starters as well because the Mariners don’t play a ton of NL teams outside of the NL West ones (SF, ARI, COL). One I do know is slugger Nolan Gorman, who has been torturing the Arkansas Travelers pitching staff this year in the former Texas League. Michael Toglia from the Rockies org will also be a familiar name for those who have followed the Everett AquaSox this year; Toglia’s teammate Corbin Carroll, a Seattle native, likely would have been named to the Futures Game but unfortunately suffered a season-ending shoulder injury earlier this season. Speaking of injuries, RHP Emerson Hancock was also selected for the Mariners, but won’t participate as he’s dealing with a minor shoulder injury. (Source: www.lookoutlanding.com)

League

2. Adley Rutschman, Baltimore Orioles — Rutschman was the first overall pick in the 2019 MLB Draft and is already the second best prospect in baseball. Wander Franco was the best prospect in the game before he got called up to the Rays. The young catcher will not be too far behind Franco as he’s slashing.286/.419/.503 with 11 HRs and 36 RBI at Double-A Bowie. MLB.com projects the 23-year-old to make his major league debut this season, which would not be out of the question.

It’s a seven-inning game. Dominguez will likely get one or maybe two at-bats. If, in a worst-case scenario, he sees six pitches and swings and misses at all six, it won’t harm his long-term development. If he does hit a ball hard, it’s all the more impressive that he’s managed to do so without any experience above the Florida Complex League. (Source: www.baseballamerica.com)
