The Futures Game hits and misses 

June, 23, 2010

I'll do a more thorough writeup of the Futures Game rosters once All-Star Sunday is closer, by which point the rosters will have changed anyway because of injuries and callups. For now, here's a quick reaction, focusing on some smart inclusions and some puzzling omissions. And here are links to the U.S. and World rosters.

Good to see

Mike Trout, OF, Los Angeles Angels/USA:
One of the most exciting prospects in the minors, Trout is a five-tool outfielder with great plate discipline who is dominating low-A at age 18. If MLB decided to redo the 2009 draft, he'd be no worse than the fourth pick.
