2017-07-31 23:00:00 (link to chat)Were you surprised Texas was unable to get any of LAs high upside 2nd tier prospects or upper level high floor prospects. Most of us knew they wouldnt get Verdugo or Buehler but I thought theyd at least get a couple of Heredia, Ruiz, Mitch White, Kyle Farmer, Edwin Rios etc.
(Dirky dirk from Buffalo Bills dungeon)
Well, when you're selling a rental in a deadline deal like this, you sort of have three ways you can play it depending on the player/context involved: 1) salary dump, marginal prospects back, 2) quantity return, couple higher-probability/lower-ceiling guys, 3) one centerpiece a step below "top prospect," couple other A-ball lotto tickets. Rangers elected for Door #3. If they'd elected for Door #2, then these are the kinds of guys I'd have expected to be involved. I will say that the fact nobody pried Dennis Santana off these guys is downright crimi-nimi-nal. (Wilson Karaman)
2015-07-13 14:30:00 (link to chat)Explain the process of how some guys aren't selected for the futures game? I heard teams can deny permission, especially if guy may get promoted soon. Is it a mix of potential, production, and cater to the host city?
(Davin from Pittsburgh)
This seems like a good starting point:

Each team can have up to 2 selections for the Futures Game, generally consisting of 1 world player, 1 USA player.

Teams can simply deny permission of a player (Dodgers and Corey Seager), or players can sit out due to injury (Cardinals and Alex Reyes). There really isn't any drawn out explanation other than this. But it's essentially the choice of the team whether they send a player selected.

Usually, you'll see two of the best prospects per team selected, but that is not always the case. They need to fill out bother rosters, and sometimes this means a player such as Kyle Farmer or Cheslor Cuthbert will be selected. - Tucker Blair (Futures Game Chat)
