With Frank Montas out after knee surgery, Micah Johnson was the lone representative in the 2014 Futures Game at Target Field. He entered the game in the fifth inning playing second base. He went 0-for-2 with a pair of groundouts at the plate and started a double play in the fifth.

Target Field is one of the stadiums rigged up for MLBAM's play-tracking system, and here's a video showing the data behind the 4-6-3 double play Johnson started:

But Texas prospect Joey Gallo came away as the true star of the Futures Game, and not just because he hit a two-run homer that ended up accounting for the decisive run in the U.S. team's 3-2 victory. He would've had people talking if he never even appeared in the game because he put on an incredible display during batting practice.

When I supported the idea of Jose Abreu participating in the Home Run Derby, this is the kind of thing I'm talking about.

Sunday's box scores will appear in the comments shortly.
