Adam Duvall was the Reds only 2016 all-star selection. Duvall is hitting .252/.290/.559 with 22 HR, 59 RBI, 117 wRC+, and 1.7 fWAR. Duvall is tied for second in the NL with 22 home runs. This is Duvall’s first all-star selection. Who would have ever thought this before the season? It wasn’t even a given that Duvall would make the team out of spring training.

The other Reds who were probably close to consideration were Zack Cozart, Jay Bruce, and Joey Votto. Cozart is 4th among NL SS in fWAR at 2.1. Bruce is 6th among NL OF in SLG at .540. Votto leads all Reds hitters in wRC+ at 126 following his recent surge. It is pretty difficult to get more than one player on the roster however when you are 31-54, and 22.0 games out of first place.

Bruce would be the Reds best hope to be an injury replacement. Dexter Fowler, who was selected as an all-star, is currently on the DL. Cozart and Votto are both behind very crowded positions.

Adam Duvall will try to break a recent streak of all-star struggles for the Reds. They haven’t had a hit since the 2010 game (Rolen), and are 0 for 19 since 2011.
