2. SP Pablo Lopez
2021 Season Stats: 4-4, 2.87 ERA, 1.077 WHIP, 22 BB, 94 K
If you were to pick one player from this season in all of baseball that is quietly having a phenomenal season, you could make an excellent argument for Lopez. Through 16 starts on the season, Lopez currently ranks 19th in the game with a 2.87 ERA, as well as slightly ahead of Alcantara in strikeouts T-31st with 94.
Still yet to make his final start on Friday in Atlanta to potentially improve those phenomenal first-half numbers, it’s still clear that Lopez clearly has All-Star caliber numbers. If he turns in a strong start Friday, should the 25-year old right-hander having a career-year make his first career All-Star team this season?
1. SP Trevor Rogers
2021 Season Stats: 7-5, 2.14 ERA, 1.040 WHIP, 32 BB, 110 K
When looking at the Miami Marlins’ players worthy of consideration to make the 2021 MLB All-Star Game, Rogers should be considered as a 100% lock. Evident by a 2.14 ERA through his first 16 starts of the season, good for fifth in all of baseball, it’s clear just how good Rogers has been this season.
Widely considered as the current favorite to win the 2021 NL Rookie of the Year, Rogers also leads the Marlins in WAR at 2.9, as well as 18th in baseball with 110 strikeouts. Rogers’ continues to have a phenomenal 2021 season, and should be the favorite to represent the Marlins in this years All-Star Game.
While time will tell on who the Miami Marlins will send to the 2021 MLB All-Star Game, it’s clear that Miami has multiple players having All-Star caliber seasons. Now that you’ve seen who we think should be considered, who would you send to this year’s All-Star Game?
