Hypothetical 2013 Futures Game Roster

I saw Kevin Goldstein tweet about this and then my brain started spinning, as it does when confronted with crazy ideas. So I spent an hour or so and came up with this. Each team is represented. Only two players per team, except the Mets get 3. I know some of these guys won't be considered and I tried not to use players from this years' game other than a few. I didn't pick anyone that I thought would have a good chance at being in the majors next year, so it has a youth bent.

Here they are:

P Kevin Gausman Orioles
P Taylor Guerreiri Rays
P Archie Bradley D'Backs
P Zach Wheeler Mets
P Zach Lee Dodgers
P Lucas Giolito Nationals
P Tyrell Jenkins Cardinals
P Marcus Stroman Blue Jays
P Kyle Crick Giants
P Andrew Heaney Marlins
C Mike Zunino Mariners
C Austin Hedges Padres
1B Matt Davidson D'backs
2B Chris Bostick A's
3B Kaleb Cowart Angels
SS Deven Marrero Red Sox
CI Garin Cecchini Red Sox
CI Richie Shaffer Rays
MI Trevor Story Rockies
MI Gavin Cecchini Mets
OF Courtney Hawkins White Sox
OF James Ramsey Cardinals
OF Victor Roache Brewers
OF Byron Buxton Twins
OF Jake Marisnick Blue Jays


P Jose Fernandez Marlins
P Dan Corcino Reds
P Akeel Morris Mets
P Yordano Ventura Royals
P Joan Gregorio Giants
P Evan Rutckyj Yankees
P Luis Heredia Pirates
P Elvis Araujo Indians
P Lisalberto Bonilla Phillies
P Adys Portillo Padres
C Christian Bethancourt Braves
C Gary Sanchez Yankees
1B Jeimer Candelario Cubs
2B Rougned Odor Rangers
3B Miguel Sano Twins
SS Francisco Lindor Indians
CI Cheslor Cuthbert Royals
CI Renato Nunez A's
MI Alen Hanson Pirates
MI Carlos Correa Astros
OF Steven Moya Tigers
OF Julio Morban Mariners
OF Jorge Soler Cubs
OF Domingo Santana Astros
OF Danry Vasquez Tigers

  1. A High-A player (Sano) will not be an MiLB all star nor will hardly any other players. Yasiel Puig, Christian Yelich, Oscar Taveras, Jared Cossart, Michael Wacha, Danny Hultzen, Gerrit Cole, Jameison Tailon, Taijuan Walker, and Tyler Skaggs etc. will all be in the Futures Game by far. Disappointed.
