The Arizona Fall League’s fifth annual Rising Stars Game will be on MLB Network tonight at 9 ET, and the rosters include three of the Yankees top prospects: LHP Manny Banuelos, C Austin Romine and 3B Brandon Laird.

The Rising Stars Game is an all-star game, but it’s more of a showcase for the top prospects — not necessarily the top performers — in the Fall League.

Banuelos was picked as the starting pitcher for the East team. He’ll be starting against Royals prospect Mike Montgomery.

Eighteen former first-round Draft picks are on the rosters for this year’s Rising Stars Game, including a young Pirates catcher named Tony Sanchez. Phil Hughes has been in the Rising Stars Game. So have Buster Posey, Mike Leake, Gordon Beckham, Ryan Braun, Jacoby Ellsbury, and Ike Davis.
