While most of the baseball world is fixated on who was snubbed in the All-Star Game vote, prospect fans were also robbed of seeing top talent during next week's festivities. Because of injury, there will be no Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Nick Senzel or Eloy Jimenez in Washington D.C. for this year's All-Star Futures Game. Despite missing those names, there is plenty of talent to take in during Sunday's exhibition.
For the sake of this space, I'll skip talking about some of the players we talk about weekly. Dakota Hudson, Forrest Whitley, Francisco Mejia and Fernando Tatis Jr. will all be in the nation's capital and are all represented on the weekly top-10 update.
Today the focus will be on some of the bigger talents that are a little bit farther behind on their road to the show due to age and experience. That said, these are names you want to know going forward because they will be the ones we talk about as early as next spring.
