Here are the starting lineups for the 2013 Futures Game



The 2013 All-Star Week festivities get underway this afternoon with the Futures Game — a showcase of some of the best prospects in baseball, pitting U.S.-born players against those from around the world. First pitch is scheduled for 2 p.m. ET at New York’s Citi Field. The game will be broadcast on ESPN 2.

One of the best sights to see during All-Star Week is Futures Game batting practice. The kids aren’t used to the big stadium, the big crowd and the throngs of media, so they each try to put on a show when they step in. Miguel Sano, the Twins’ powerful rising star, apparently lived up to the hype earlier this morning.

The Cubs and Indians have released their lineups for Game 1 of the World Series.

Joe Maddon makes two notable changes: Kyle Schwarber as the DH and Chris Coghlan in right, with Jason Heyward on the bench.

Heyward has been close to a lost cause at the plate all season for the Cubs and is 2-for-24 in the playoffs this year. While his defense is a plus, Maddon has decided that he’d rather have the lefty Coghlan facing Corey Kluber.

Joe Frisaro of reports that the Rockies have been granted permission to interview Marlins bench coach Tim Wallach about their managerial opening.

Wallach was a bench coach for Don Mattingly with both the Dodgers and Marlins. Before that he was a third base coach for L.A. and before that he managed in Triple-A where he was the Pacific Coast League Manager of the Year in 2009 with Albuquerque. He likewise served time as the Dodgers hitting coach. He previously interviewed for managers gigs in Detroit and Seattle but didn’t make the cut.

Walt Weiss was fired as Rockies manager after going 283-365 in four seasons.
