The SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game is often the most interesting part of All-Star weekend, and not just because we get to see the best talent in the Minor Leagues all in one spot. It's because for many of these players, it's the first time we get them in front of the Statcast tracking cameras, and therefore the first time we can see if the data matches the prodigious scouting reports.
