The NBA 2K video game is full of player ratings. In addition to their overall numerical rating, their rating in each specific category, such as defense and rebounding, is also an indication of how well they will score in those categories. The label "Future Stars" next to their name is how the game refers to players that have potential, who are being rated with the potential to rise to the elite level in the near future.

One spot remains open on each roster. For the first time, fans will determine the final player on both the U.S. and World Team rosters by casting their votes in the All-Star Sunday Futures Finalists (#FuturesFinalists) ballot. Tyler Austin (Yankees), Nick Castellanos (Tigers), Garin Cecchini (Red Sox), Courtney Hawkins (White Sox) and Brandon Nimmo (Mets) are the candidates for the U.S. team and Javier Baez (Cubs), Ji-Man Choi (Mariners), Carlos Correa (Astros), Renato Nunez (Athletics) and Rougned Odor (Rangers) eligible for the World squad.

Rounding out the Future Stars pitching staff and representing Lynchburg is right-hander Nate Hyatt. First baseman William Beckwith, second baseman Ross Heffley, shortstop Elmer Reyes, third baseman Kyle Kubitza and outfielders Robby Hefflinger and Matt Lipka (No. 8 MLB.com) are expected to start the season with Lynchburg. Catcher Tyler Tewell, shortstop Jose Peraza (No. 20 MLB.com) and outfielder Josh Elander look to begin the year in Rome. (Source: www.milb.com)

The Avalanche (Kadri, MacKinnon, Makar) and the Lightning (Stamkos, defenseman Victor Hedman, goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy) will each have three players in the game. In addition to the Golden Knights, five other teams had two players selected: the Hurricanes (forward Sebastian Aho, goalie Frederik Andersen) and the Rangers (Fox, forward Chris Kreider) in the Metropolitan; the Maple Leafs (Matthews, goalie Jack Campbell) in the Atlantic; the Wild (Kaprizov, goalie Cam Talbot) in the Central; and the Oilers (McDavid, forward Leon Draisaitl) in the Pacific.

The Last Men In for each division, as decided by a fan vote, were named on Jan. 18. Nazem Kadri of the Avalanche, Steven Stamkos of the Tampa Bay Lightning, Troy Terry of the Anaheim Ducks and Jake Guentzel of the Pittsburgh Penguins were added to the rosters for their respective divisions. Guentzel will play in place of Rangers forward Mika Zibanejad, who won the fan vote but can't play in the All-Star Game because of personal reasons. (Source: www.nhl.com)
