The Colorado Rockies may be struggling at the major league level, but percolating in the minors is a strong crop of prospects poised to become household names. In the 2012 MLB Futures Game, the Rockies will have an opportunity to feature one of their talented young infielders.
3B Nolan Arenado and SP Edwar Cabrera were both selected to the Futures Game, and though Cabrera will be unable to play because he is on the Rockies MLB roster, Arenado will have a chance to prove why he's the Rockies' top prospect.
