Petersen, Dominguez in All-Star Game

A couple of potential future stars — or at least big league contributors — will be showcased on Saturday night in the Arizona Fall League.

Third baseman Matt Dominguez and outfielder Bryan Petersen have been selected to the East squad in the Rising Stars Showcase, which will be played at Surprise Stadium in Arizona.

The game, which starts at 8:15 p.m. ET, will be televised on the MLB Network. A live video feed also will be available on MLB.com.

In all 50 prospects will be on the two rosters.

All the Marlins prospects in Arizona are playing for the Mesa team.

Dominguez, 20, was the Marlins first-round pick in 2007. Petersen was selected in the fourth round that year.

Dominguez and Petersen were part of Double-A Jacksonville’s Southern League championship squad. Most likely, both will be in Spring Training with the Marlins.

Nationals prize prospect, Stephen Strasburg, the No. 1 overall pick in 2009, will also be on the East team.
