Arizona Fall League Fall Stars game preview

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Many of the game's top prospects will take the field Saturday for the AFL's Fall Stars Game.

For those still weary about going months without baseball, Saturday night should be temporary reprieve as the Arizona Fall League's Fall Stars Game provides some action. With many of the game's top prospects taking the field, it's one of the most exciting events you'll be able to watch during the offseason.

Starting at 8 p.m. ET and broadcast by MLB Network, the game features the best players from the Arizona Fall League, where many top prospects go after the minor league season. Saturday's game features elite young players like Twins outfielder Byron Buxton and Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant, making for a pretty solid competition.

Here are the starting lineups for the game:

The two starting pitchers, Toronto's Aaron Sanchez and Washington's Alex Meyer, offer some of the most electrifying raw stuff in the minors. Both can sit in the mid-90s and reach even higher, so if you're a sucker for big-time velocity, the pitchers alone make this game worth catching.

Here's a link to the roster for the East team, which includes top prospects such as Bryant, Addison Russell, Albert Almora, Jorge Soler, C.J. Cron and Alen Hanson.
