AFL announces Fall Stars Game rosters | MiLB.com News

Two of MLB.com’s top five prospects, Nationals outfielder Victor Robles (No. 2) and Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna (No. 5), lead a group of 10 top-100 prospects set to battle Saturday, Nov. 4 at 8 p.m. ET at Salt River Fields.

That group also includes top Astros prospect (No. 7 overall) Kyle Tucker, another five-tool outfielder. While Tucker is struggling with a .217/.333/.326 batting line in 54 plate appearances and Robles has played just four games after being on Washington’s roster for the National League Division Series, Acuna has picked up where he left off after a breakout season that saw him climb from Class A Advanced Florida to Triple-A Gwinnett as a 19-year-old.

Acuna’s three AFL home runs are tied for third with two other players. He’s also tied for second with Padres No. 10 prospect Josh Naylor with 17 hits and leads the league with 17 runs scored. He ranks in the top six in batting average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage and boasts a .378/.455/.667 line over 55 plate appearances.
