The AFL Rising Stars Game is tonight at 5:05 local time (8:05 eastern) and can be seen on MLB Network, and probably streaming on mlb.com as well. Here is the complete West team roster
(which includes the two Rays participating, Mikie Mahtook and Tyler Bortnick), and here's the East team
If I had to guess, the starting infield from 3B to 1B would be Mike Olt, Nick Franklin, Jeff Gyorko, and Joe Terdoslavich, which Bortnick coming off the bench. In the outfield, I'd guess Michael Choice starts in CF and Wil Myers in RF, leaving Mahtook in the mix to start in LF.
Mikie isn't starting, either.ReplyDelete
Mikie didn't play because he is hurt per Jonathan Mayo.ReplyDelete
In another late change to the West roster, Marlins outfielder Kevin Mattison took the spot of Rays 2011 first-round pick Mikie Mahtook, who is injured.
Here's the link, but that's the whole thing: http://mlb.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20111105&content_id=25918576&vkey=news_was&c_id=was
Makes sense, with Mahtook being taken out his most recent game where he was 3-for-4.ReplyDelete
