Humberto Sanchez and Cameron Maybin named to the futures team
The futures game is a great chance to see prospects on national television. It will probably be broadcasted on ESPN2 and Peter Gammons is likely to be one of the main commentators. He typically has an idea of what teams think of prospects and is one of the few national reporters that really seems to enjoy learning about the rising talent.
I am sure that they will have a ton of good things to say about both of these guys and I am sure that both will get at least some playing time (barring Sanchez being on the Tigers roster on July 9th).
Anyway I would tune in to watch the Tigers two best prospects. Just like last season when it was Joel Zumaya and Justin Verlander flashing their talents.
It feels good to have legit prospects to send unlike when the Tigers had players like Preston Larrison in the game.
