Players to Watch at the Tournament of Stars

The Tournament of Stars kicked off on Tuesday, giving some scouts their first look at some of the top prospects for the 2016 MLB draft.

The real reason for the accumulation of talent in Cary, North Carolina, however, is to whittle down 108 players to a 20-man roster that will compete in the World Baseball Summer Classic 18-under World Cup in Japan, for Team USA. You can find more info here on the competition.

The list of players participating is a who’s who of talent, and the tournament pits the best of the best against each other, giving organizations in attendance their first extended look at these players against elite competition.

The players in attendance this year as as follows, in alphabetical order of their college commitments.
