The MLB All-Star game is quickly approaching, it is an exciting time of year where the fans get to see some of the best players in baseball team up and play ball against the best players from the American and National League. Voting is currently in full swing as the fans decide who is in and who is out. For the Phillies, it is exciting to see who is going to represent the city of brotherly love in the upcoming game. There are some players on this team that stand out and others who are quietly having a good season.
Throughout this season, Bryce Harper has been the best hitter in the Phillies lineup. He has been the centerpiece in the Phillies lineup and should earn an All-Star spot. This season, Harper has hit for a .272 batting average, 11 home runs and 21 RBI’s. His on base percentage is at a .385 and his slugging percentage is at a .492. He has shown he has all of the tools to be an All-Star this season. As of June 28th, 2021, Bryce Harper is a finalist to be in the All-Star game. He has the talent and the tools to be an All-Star and this season he has shown it.
No one saw this one coming. Zack Wheeler has been on an absolute tear this season. Wheeler this season has been one of the best pitchers in the National League this season. Currently, Wheeler has a record of 6-4, an ERA of, 2.20, with 130 strikeouts, which already is nearing his career-high. Wheeler has been rolling this season and it was completely unexpected. This sheer dominance from Zack Wheeler this season should give him the opportunity to go to Denver for the All-Star Game.
The best catcher in baseball could receive an invite to play in the All-Star game this summer. Realmuto has played well enough where he could earn a spot to play for the NL in the big summer classic. This season Realmuto has batted, .269 with 7 home runs and 29 RBI’s. Even on the defensive side, Realmuto has played very well. He is still one of, if not the best, catcher in baseball when it comes to an all-around game. And due to that Realmuto has the opportunity to be an All-Star this summer.
