Update [2007-7-8 13:42:27 by Eric Hz]: There have been a couple of rosters changes thanks to promotions. Off the US roster is CF Jacoby Ellsbury and SP Matt Garza. They were replaced by Twins' OF Matt Tolbert and Mets' SP Kevin Mulvey. Tolbert's slash stats are 313/374/452 with just 29 strikeouts in 230 ABs. Mulvey has a 3.40 ERA in AA, his first full-season since being drafted in 2006. He sports a nice 1.66 GB/FB ratio.
On the World roster, the Mets 18-year-old AA phenom, Fernando martinez, is out with an injury. In his stead is Astros' OF James Von Ostrand. In his first full-season since being drafted in 2006, he has an .820 OPS with 36 Ks in 237 ABs.
Update [2007-7-8 14:31:41 by Eric Hz]: Thanks to an injury to the Tigers' Cameron Maybin, Jacoby Ellsbury has been re-added to the US Roster.
The rosters for the 2007 XM Satellite All-Star Futures Game were announced on June 21st. The game is fast becoming, if it already isn't, the marquee event of the All-Star Game festivities. The rosters are selected in a collaborative effort between MLB, the 30 major league clubs and Baseball America and MLB.com, and the game will be broadcast on ESPN2 at 4PM on All-Star Sunday. it will also be carried on Channel 176 on XM Radio.
Because of this collaborative effort, one only sees those players considered to be future stars in the game. There are no AAAA players. Because of this, these rosters offer fantasy players a glimpse into which players will be receiving extensive coverage once the off-season begins and prospect lists begin compilation.
What I am providing is an easy one-stop place to see both rosters and a notable statistic for each player so far. In the links provided to MiLB's Futures Game coverage and to that of Baseball America's US Roster and World Roster, there is more detailed information available. For MiLB.com, there is a direct link to each player's up-to-date 2007 stats page, and, in BA's, there is also a brief scouting report for each player. I suggest both for those interested in a fuller picture of the players involved.
