It has been a tremendous season for prospects across Major League Baseball. Scattered throughout the league are young players making huge impacts at the highest level. The talent rush is great for the game. It is also great for fantasy players. Missed out on an impact outfielder? Here's Oscar Mercado. Need another arm? Logan Allen is available.
With such a frantic pace of promotions -- I would guess most have lost 15-25 players from pre-season rankings -- it can be hard to replenish the supply, but this crop of prospects has deep reserves. The next group of potential stars will be front and center this Sunday in Cleveland.
The 2019 Futures Game will look a little different. No longer will it the United States against the world. This year, the game takes on the traditional American League versus National League format.
With that in mind, let's take a look at five players on each side to keep an eye on. Some will have a more immediate timeline while others are ones to keep an eye on for 2020 and beyond.
