Last year at the All-Star break, the best prospect in the minor leagues was Arizona's Justin Upton. He was on the U.S. roster for the Futures Game, put on a show in BP, homered in the game and was in the big leagues a month later.

This season, as we enter the All-Star break, the best prospect in the minor leagues is Baltimore's Matt Wieters. He wasn't in the Futures Game.

Neither was the best pitching prospect in the minors, Tampa Bay's David Price.
