The Sirius XM 2013 MLB Futures Game highlights the final weekend heading into the All-Star break. What better way to get a sneak peek at the best prospects in both the American and National leagues, not only home grown talent, but from around the world! The 15th annual Futures Game is being held at Citi Field in New York and will be carried LIVE on ESPN2 beginning at 2pm EST this Sunday afternoon. While some preseason favorites like Dylan Bundy (pictured) are either injured or not living up to expectations, both the USA and World rosters are loaded with talent! Let's take a look at those that may get a chance with "The Show" at some point later this season.
As we pass the one-third mark of the season and quickly ride towards July and the All-Star break, who are the minor league players that will soon be on your radar?

Much of fantasy baseball and fantasy sports in general is anticipating moves in advance of your competition. With that in mind, the first of our four part series looking at Triple-A players with fantasy appeal in 2013. We begin with American League position players.
