Dodgers shortstop prospect Corey Seager will play in the 2014 Arizona Fall League Fall Stars Game, the annual showcase of the game's top prospects who are participating in the fall league.

The game will be played at Salt River Fields in Scottsdale - home of the Diamondbacks and Rockies - and will start at 5 p.m. PT. It will be televised on Saturday night by MLB Network and streamed live on MLB.com.

Seager is the only Dodgers player on the West Division roster, which also includes outfielder Rusney Castillo, infielder Francisco Lindor and others. This is the second straight year Seager will play in the Fall Stars Game; in 2013 he was joined by teammate Yimi Garcia, who made his major league debut in the Dodgers bullpen this September.

Seager, 20, is hitting .235/.345/.412 with six doubles, a triple and seven RBI in 13 games in the AFL this season, and is ranked the No. 13 overall prospect in baseball by MLB.com.

The shortstop was co-winner of the Branch Rickey Minor League Player of the Year Award with Joc Pederson in 2014 as the best position players in the organization after hitting .349/.402/.602 with 50 doubles, 20 home runs and 97 RBI in 118 games across two levels this season, including winning the California League MVP despite playing only 80 games with Class-A Rancho Cucamonga before his promotion to Double-A Chattanooga.

Seager will likely spend the bulk of his 2015 season in Oklahoma, with his time split between Double-A Tulsa and Triple-A Oklahoma City yet to be determined. Seager said he hasn't set an exact date as a goal for reaching the Dodgers.

"I've tried to stay away from that," Seager said. "If it happens, it happens. I don't like to set it that far out."
