The World Series may be over, but the Arizona Fall League is still alive and kicking for the next two and a half weeks. On Saturday, a handful of top prospects will take the field for the annual Fall Stars Game at Surprise Stadium.

MLB.com’s Jonathan Mayo highlighted a few of the prospects with the highest-grade tools in tonight’s game, including shortstops Franklin Barreto and Nick Gordon, outfielders Eloy Jimenez, Tyler O’Neill,  Anthony Alford, Michael Gettys and Brett Phillips, third baseman Miguel Andujar, left-hander Trey Ball, and right-handers Michael Kopech, Francis Martes, Brent Honeywell, and David Paulino.

Fans voted for two last-minute additions to the rosters on Thursday. Andujar beat shortstop Gavin Cecchini for the last spot on the East Division roster, while shortstop/center fielder Mauricio Dubon gained an edge over outfielders Brandon Dixon and Courtney Hawkins on the West Division squad. A team-by-team breakdown of the East and West Division rosters can be found here.

The Fall Stars Game will air on MLB Network and MLB.com at 8 PM EDT.
