Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Two of the Dodgers' three top prospects are on display on Sunday afternoon in Minnesota for the Futures Game. Corey Seager bats third for the U.S. squad on Sunday, while Julio Urias will be the fifth pitcher for the World team.

The Futures Game is the start of meaningful All-Star activities at Target Field in Minnesota, and will begin at 2 p.m. PT. The game will be televised on MLB Network and simulcast on MLB.com, with Matt Vasgerisan and Sean Casey on the call, with Heidi Watney and Jonathan Mayo as well.

Seager, hitting .352/.411/.633 with 18 home runs, 34 doubles and 70 RBI in 80 games for Class-A Rancho Cucamonga, starts at shortstop for the U.S. team, which will be managed by former Twins manager Tom Kelly. Among the minor league coaches on the U.S. coaching staff is Double-A Chattanooga hitting coach Shawn Wooten, with whom Seager will be be intimately familiar with very soon.

Urias, with a 3.44 ERA, 58 strikeouts and 25 walks in 52⅓ innings at age 17 in the California League, will be the fifth pitcher to take the mound for the World team. Jose Berrios (Twins) starts for the World team, with Domingo German (Marlins), Edwin Escobar (Giants) and Luis Severino (Yankees) to follow before Urias' turn.

The World team will be managed by former Twins pitcher Burt Blyleven.
