The Uncle Sam All-Star’s
The players that are in this tier may not be all-star’s but they are close enough in the voting where they could realistically make the team with a bump in voting. Brantley has been a pleasant surprise for the Tribe. Even the most optimistic fan wouldn’t have expected Brantley to play this well after missing over a year due to injury. While he hasn’t played up to his 2014-15 form, he still carries an above average bat and can still hit in the .300 range.
Ramirez is just around 100,000 votes behind the leader at third base, Miguel Sano. Even if he doesn’t get voted in, I would still expect Ramirez to make it to Miami. He is basically reproducing the same numbers as last year and is quickly gaining respect from players across the league.
Believe it or not, but Santana is just a mere 55,000 votes from the top spot among first basemen. Santana’s numbers are down overall from his career pace, but normally he doesn’t start to hit well until the summer months. Even with the slow start, Santana still leads the Indians in RBI, doubles and walks.
