Minnesota Twins: The case for each potential MLB All-Star Game starter
The Minnesota Twins have four players who will be in the MLB All-Star Starters Election, which begins on Wednesday afternoon.
The first half has been remarkable for the Minnesota Twins. Heading into the final weeks before the All-Star break, the Twins owned the best record in the American League (50-27 entering Tuesday) and featured a lineup that has hit the most home runs in Major League Baseball.
With success like that, it’s no surprise that the Twins have four representatives that will be a part of the first ever MLB All-Star Game Starters Election. The voting process, which begins Wednesday at 11 a.m. CT, will determine the starters for the MLB All-Star Game which will take place in Cleveland on July 9.
Unlike recent years, the Twins have several players who are worth a spot in the American League’s starting lineup. Unfortunately, with the process being a popularity contest, some of the players that should be in the mix to start might not get the opportunity.
That’s where this article will come in handy. As a voter, it’s worth being informed when you go to the (virtual) polls and while there are many worthwhile options out there, we’ll make the case as to why the Twins should have a starter (or four) in the All-Star Game.
