THE FUTURE'S SO BRIGHT: Yesterday's SiriusXM Futures Game in K.C., featuring minor-league all-stars, drew a sellout crowd of 40,095 at Kauffman Stadium, believed to be a record for the 12-year-old event. The turnout builds meaningfully upon a draw of 37,012 at Chase Field a year ago.

The host Royals had three of their prospects in yesterday's game.
