The World's Chia-Jen Lo, a prospect with Houston, really dialed up when he loaded the bases, touching 93 and adding 5 mph to that big curveball before fanning Scott Sizemore on a 91 mph fastball. --Keith Law
8:05 p.m. ET
If you're going to be a lefty-on-lefty guy in the big leagues, you can't leave fastballs belt-high against them. Luis Perez found that out the hard way against Jason Castro.
8:01 p.m. ET
Jarrod Parker, a right-hander for the U.S. team and a prospect with the Diamondbacks, was warming up at 93.
7:40 p.m. ET
For whatever reason (weather, the rain delay) velocity is down for pretty much all the pitchers. Francisco Samuel, Mat Latos and Jhoulys Chacin all down a few ticks from where they were at the Texas League All-Star Game a couple of weeks ago.
7:32 p.m. ET
Eric Young Jr. has been a stolen-base machine for Colorado's Triple-A farm club in Colorado Springs this season. He has 48 steals in 57 attempts.
7:27 p.m. ET
Leyson Septimo, a lefty on the World team, is up to 93 -- loose arm, slider breaks pretty early. Major league hitters would likely see that out of his hand.
7:22 p.m. ET
World manager Jose Oquendo calls for the lefty to face Pedro Alvarez. This time it counts!!!!
7:14 p.m. ET
Just saw this: Francisco Samuel, a pitcher for the World Team and a prospect in the St. Louis organization, has hit 95 mph a few times, with a slider at 85.
6:31 p.m. ET
All the water has been pushed aside and play has resumed after a 4-hour, 9-minute rain delay. Now, all the baseball executives who have players in the Futures Game have to hold their breath and hope everything goes well over the seven innings or so on this slippery track.
6:03 p.m. ET
There will be baseball. How much, nobody is sure at this point. The announcement just came that the Futures Game will resume at 6:30 p.m. ET. The plan is still a seven-inning game but there is a catch: No inning will start after 8:30 p.m. ET. So if they want to play seven innings, they better play quickly.
3:43 p.m. ET
Even as scouts and development people gathered at Busch Stadium for the Futures Game, everyone had an opinion about the Roy Halladay sweepstakes.
2:55 p.m. ET
Mike Arbuckle, a senior adviser to Royals general manager Dayton Moore, was one of many scouts and front office people at Busch Stadium for the All-Star Futures Game on Sunday.
2:30 p.m. ET
1:50 p.m. ET
Groundskeepers keep getting more and more creative. No longer are cross-patterns in the infield and outfield enough. This year, at Busch Stadium, the grass in the outfield is cut with a large picture of the Old Courthouse building framed by the Gateway Arch. Wonder what they'll come up with next?
12:08 p.m. ET
Different people watch baseball in different ways. Fans sit in seats around the park. Media members get used to the same view, from right behind home plate. Scouts have their own place, and it makes for an interesting picture on this Sunday morning. Busch Stadium is not yet open to the fans, so those red seats are pretty much empty except for the group of scouts positioned along the first-base line.
