It's that time of year again – All-Star voting t
The first voting updates have started four weeks away.
Let's take a look back at Cleveland for the big game:
The sure things
Baez is the best of all. It is no stupid that he was the best in season in 2019.
In the short story. T (Paul DeJong, jean Segura, Corey Seager, Manny Machado), but nobody has a stronger argument than Baez. Even if they did, somewhere in the infield.
Meanwhile, Contreras ranks third in the NL in WAR (behind J.T. Realmuto and Yasmani Grandal) He's cooled off at the plate lately, but he's still on pace for 33 t
He still ranks negatively on pitch-framing metrics, but Contreras has reached 10 percent better than league average (38 percent to 28 percent).
Mostly-All-Danger besides cats, this is a room for Contreras, Grandal and Realmuto to do it. Last year, Superintendent was delighted to see his progress 2018 pace.
In the beginning of the world. Tby the beginning of pitchers. T The Professor is 6-0 with a 1.99 ERA and 0.81 t start the NL squad.
With Baez's continued ascension to superstardom and Bryant's Return to elite status, Rizzo's excellence this year DG Often flown under the radar. But he's really well-off in homers, RBI, runs scored and OPS.
Rizzo is last fifth in WAR t Josh Bell and Freddie Freeman seem like locks and then Rizzo would have to beat out Max Muncy, Pete Alonso, Rhys Hoskins and Paul Goldschmidt for the last spot on the NL roster.
It is possible to ask Rizzo deserves to pack his bags for Cleveland.
Bryant has silenced any question Hello third in NL
Mike Moustakas (20 homers, 43 RBI) and Eduardo Escobar (17 homers, 54 RBI) t
The outside shots
Albert Almora Jr.
Schwarber has been really hot for Cleveland.
Almora's defense is there, but his offensive numbers aren't. Honors. T
It is pretty loaded – with Cody Bellinger, Christian Yelich and Ronald Acuna Jr. (Joc Pederson, Ketel Marte, Michael Conforto, Bryce Harper, Marcell Ozuna, Starling Marte, David Peralta, David Dahl, Juan Soto) t roster.
Base, L L,, L,, L Bo Bo Bo, but
Have been solid all year out of the Cubs. T
Lester, Hamels and Quintana have had their ups-and-downs throughout the year. (Hamels – 15th; Quintana – 20th; Lester – 24th), should go to Cleveland, it should be Hendricks.
Carl Edwards Jr.
All-Star tpotential, injury, suspension, etc. t four weeks.
