A short report, as plenty of leagues take the night off, not wanting to compete with the All-Star game.

Tim Wheeler, OF, Rockies (Double-A Tulsa): 2-for-4, 2 HR (24), 2 R, 3 RBI, K. It was a bit baffling to see Wheeler not selected to the Futures Game, and even more so when Mike Trout was promoted to the big leagues, creating an obvious opening. As somebody who was once involved in the selection process, it should be noted that teams sometimes don't make players available for a variety of reasons, so let's simply celebrate the season Wheeler is having. At .313/.394/.602 in 87 games with 24 home runs and 15 stolen bases, Wheeler would deservedly make any overall All-Star team, and he's looking more and more like a player who has gone from blocked behind Dexter Fowler and Charlie Blackmon to an important part of Colorado's future.
