The Futures Game rosters came out on Thursday, and the White Sox placed three in the game. Yoan Moncada is the White Sox’ rep on the World team, while Michael Kopech and Zack Collins could be a potential battery on the U.S. team.

The White Sox are one of three teams sending three prospects, and Baseball America has thumbnails for the U.S. and World teams. Moncada will get a chance to defend his Futures Game MVP after sealing his case in San Diego with this blast last year:
