Tuesday, rosters for the Arizona Fall League Fall Stars Game were announced. Scouts, executives, and media members decided on the rosters, and there will be a lot of talented players on the field Saturday.

The Rays account for quite a bit of that talent. Shane Baz, Vidal Brujan, and Josh Lowe were all selected to play, and Ronaldo Hernandez could be added to the roster through a fan vote that runs through Thursday.

Baz and Brujan are both top-100 prospects in baseball. In his first full season in the organization, Baz had a 2.99 ERA and 87 strikeouts in 81 13 innings for Class-A Bowling Green, and his 10.8% walk rate was a career low.

For the second straight season, Brujan led the organization in stolen bases. He had 48 steals in 61 attempts. At just 21, he reached Double A and batted .277 with a .346 on-base percentage for Class A-Advanced Charlotte and Double-A Montgomery.

Lowe is coming off the best season of his pro career. With 18 home runs for Montgomery, he nearly doubled his career total. He batted .252 with a .341 OBP and .442 slugging percentage. His 25.4% strikeout rate was a career low.

The game will be streamed on MLB.com Saturday at 8 p.m. ET.
