Major League Baseball and the Arizona Diamondbacks revealed their inaugural Spring Breakout Prospect Games roster and schedule that will point the spotlight on the league’s young talent next week.

Arizona is scheduled to face the Colorado Rockies at Salt River Fields on Saturday, March 16, at 4:10 p.m. MST. The game will air on MLB’s DBACKS.TV streaming package, MLB Network, Rockies.TV and ESPN+. It will be part of a traditional doubleheader (one admission charge) after the Rockies face the Oakland Athletics at Salt River Fields at 1:10 p.m. MST.

The D-backs’ roster will include top prospect Jordan Lawlar, who is the 11th-ranked prospect in the majors, according to MLB Pipeline.

Second-ranked prospect Tommy Troy, also a shortstop, and third-ranked prospect Druw Jones, an outfielder, are on the roster as well.
