Aroldis Chapman wasÃ‚Â selected to the NL All-Star team, and will join NL starting third-baseman Todd Frazier. It will be Aroldis Chapman’s fourth consecutive all-star selection.
Johnny Cueto was not selected by the players or manager Bruce Bochy, but did make the “Final Vote.” You can vote for Cueto on Twitter by using the #VoteCueto hashtag. Cueto is 12th the NL in fWAR (2.2), 11th in ERA (2.84), 17th in FIP (3.26), and 17th in K/9 (8.60). So he is not really that big of a snub, in terms of his numbers this season. He will have tough company as Clayton Kershaw is also in the final vote.
It would be pretty perfect for the 2015 Reds if Johnny Cueto didn’t make the All Star Game. It is pretty apparent that the Reds in some degree have waited to trade Cueto until after the ASG. Reds fans will have the chance to vote Cueto in, just like they did with Todd Frazier. You could however choose not to vote for Cueto, because voting for him would risk injury to him right before he is about to be traded. So really it’s up to you.
