Detroit Tigers players haven’t comprised the best team in the Majors as the calendar crawls towards July. However, the team is still in it, and a number of players are having excellent seasons.

Detroit Tigers fans have seen a .500 baseball team take the field so far in 2016. Despite the record, a number of star players have come out of the gates playing well. With the team in third place in late June, said players will need to keep producing if Detroit is going to turn things around.

In other news, July is just around the corner, and that means Major League Baseball’s annual Mid-Summer Classic—the All-Star game.

Detroit has sent some large contingents to All-Star Games in years past, and a number of different Tigers players could end up going this year. With the team’s pitching staff struggling at times this season, expect most of the group Detroit sends to San Diego to be from the offense. However, a pitcher sporting the Old English “D” could make their way onto the American League starter.

Here are four Detroit Tigers players, including an actual pitcher, who should be heading to Petco Park for the All-Star Game.
