Takeaways

  • There are 31 first-time All-Stars this time around, which is the most since 2016. It’s a testament to how much great, young talent continues to come into the league, sure, but there are several veterans making their first trip as well. 
  • How is this Anthony Rendon’s first All-Star Game? It’s remarkable but true. NL third base is often loaded and there aren’t that many roster spots to go around. Good for him. 
  • We’ll get to the snubs in a separate article, but the most mind-boggling to me is Jose Abreu over Luke Voit at first base. It would be understandable if the White Sox needed a rep, but they already had McCann and Giolito (both deservedly so). 
  • Expect Hand to be the closer for the AL, given that this game is taking place in Cleveland’s Progressive Field. 
  • The NL has several excellent candidates to DH, but it feels like it should be Bell or Alonso, right? 
  • How about Charlie Morton? Through his age-33 season, he had never made an All-Star team, but now he makes it two straight. 
  • The Astros have the most All-Stars at six — and none of them are named Jose Altuve. 
  • Dave Roberts will pick his starting pitcher and there are three of his own pitchers as options. 
  • Will Alex Cora pick Lucas Giolito? That would be quite a story. He had the worst ERA in baseball among qualified pitchers last year. To go from that to All-Star Game starter would be an amazing journey.
