Not to rain on Sandy's parade but this is because Caleb is on the IL right? 

-Caleb on IL

-Pablo on IL

-Too many catchers on the ASG roster

-Too many first basemen/outfielders on the ASG roster

-Too many third basemen on the ASG roster

-Too many SS on the ASG roster

-Trevor Richards doesn't exist

 

ALL of these things came together to make Sandy Alcantara an All-Star.

My own personal eye test says Sandy has way better stuff than Richards (other than change up obvi).  

 

However, I do believe in xFIP.

I actually agree with the eye test, but Alcantara is only striking out 6 per 9, Richards is at 8 per 9. 

Alcantara throws hard but doesn't get any swings and misses. MLB hitters can hit 98 mph fastballs, just ask Marlins legend Jose Urena.

Caleb should be back soon so it shouldn't have mattered.

I mean I guess we have to have a representative so why not??

How about Hand making another all star team? Also congrats to former farm hand Luis Castillo on making it too.
