The All Star game this year is in Miami, Florida and the Minnesota Twins hope to have more than one member on the American League team.
In past years the Minnesota Twins have had a player placed on the team but haven’t had one voted on since 2013. The last Twin voted onto the team was catcher Joe Mauer. This year the Twins hope to have more than one All-Star; they have a good chance to do so too.
Currently Miguel Sano leads Manny Machado in the vote to start at third base. He is also leading the charge for the Twins offensively. However, he isn’t alone in helping the Twins hold onto first place in the Central Division.
Joe Mauer has quietly become one of the best defensive first basemen in the league while also improving on a rough April. Ervin Santana has had a couple rough outings but has been an ace for the Twins this season. Brandon Kintzler has been the lone bright spot in a bullpen that has lost several games for the team.
