The 2021 MLB All-Star Game is set to be hosted in Colorado on July 13th, and there could be a few Detroit Tigers worthy of the Midsummer Classic’s consideration.
You look across the Detroit Tigers roster, you see a few foundation pieces in place. The recent drafts are starting to have the young talent contribute to the roster.
The last three All-Star games featured three Tigers pitchers in Shane Greene (2019) and Joe Jimenez (2018) and Michael Fulmer (2017). The last season where the Tigers featured multiple players was in 2015, with Miguel Cabrera, Jose Iglesias, J.D Martinez and David Price.
Cabrera made the All-Star game not only as a first baseman but as a third baseman back in 2013. Only Al Kaline, who made the All-Star game as a center fielder in 1966 and as a right fielder in 1963, was the other Tiger.
The 2021 All-Star voting ends on June 24 and currently in the American League, there is definitely a feel that the Toronto Blue Jays and the Houston Astros fans are coming out in full force. Here’s the link to vote for the Tigers. https://www.mlb.com/all-star/ballot
While the Detroit Tigers haven’t boasted the season they’ve been hoping for, as they currently sit in the fifth spot in the American League Central with a 30-42 record. Despite their record, they are grooming some of the league’s brightest stars, and some could wind up playing in the MLB All-Star Game this year. Let’s take a look at some Detroit Tigers who could participate in some midseason festivities this year.
