2012 MLB Futures Game: Rosters, TV Schedule, Start Time And More

The best U.S.-born Major League Baseball prospects will square off against a 'World' prospects team as the 2012 All-Star Game festivities get underway in Kansas City Sunday. It's a chance to see the game's future stars and an opportunity for young players to get a taste of a Major League environment.

The Minnesota Twins will send outfielder Oswaldo Arcia to the game. The 6-foot, 210-pound Venezuelan turned 21 in May and is currently playing for the Double-A New Britain Rock Cats of the Eastern League.

Arcia hit .309 with seven home runs in 55 games for the High-A Fort Myers Miracle before earning a promotion. He's hit .286 in 18 games thus far at Double-A.

First pitch is scheduled for 4 pm CT from Kansas City's Kaufman Stadium and will be televised live to a national audience on ESPN2 and on MLB.TV.
