If we were to elect an All-Star team right now, purely on the numbers, here is what the 2014 All-Fantasy team would look like.
Posey is officially over his early-season slump. He has racked up 10 RBIs in 15 games this month to go along with a .303 batting average.
2014 Stats: .278 AVG, .369 OBP, 7 HRs, 23 RBIs, 8 Runs
After a lackluster 2013 season (11 HRs/42 RBIs), Montero has been peppering the ball this season. He has outproduced most of the big names at the position this fantasy season.
2014 Stats: .273 AVG, .373 OBP, 5 HRs, 24 RBIs, 15 Runs
Abreu may have been just placed on the 15-day DL with an ankle injury, but the rookie was having a monster season before hitting the shelf. He was leading the league with 15 homers and was the frontrunner for the 2014 fantasy MVP.
2014 Stats: .260 AVG, .312 OBP, 15 HRs, 42 RBIs, 29 Runs
Goldschmidt continues to show that his 2013 season (36 HRs/125 RBIs/103 Runs) wasn't a fluke. Goldy is on pace to have another 30/100/100 season.
2014 Stats: .317 AVG, .368 OBP, 9 HRs, 32 RBIs, 35 Runs
Utley is finally putting up All-Star quality numbers again. He is third in the MLB with a .338 batting average and the veteran is truly having an All-Star campaign.
2014 Stats: .338 AVG, .396 OBP, 3 HRs, 22 RBIs, 22 Runs
Dozier has been the biggest surprise at the keystone position this season. He is leading all second basemen with 11 homers, 40 runs, and 25 RBIs. Dozier has been the best value pick at second this fantasy season.
2014 Stats: .257 AVG, .374 OBP, 11 HRs, 25 RBIs, 40 Runs
Tulowitzki has always been an All-Star when on the diamond, and for the first time in years, the shortstop looks 100% healthy. The sky is the limit for Tulo in 2014.
2014 Stats: .393 AVG, .494 OBP, 13 HRs, 35 RBIs, 42 Runs
After posting a pathetic .279 batting average throughout his career, Ramirez has hit everything that crosses the plate. He currently has a robust .320 batting average and has performed like a top-tier stopgap.
2014 Stats: .320 AVG, .353 OBP, 5 HRs, 28 RBIs, 27 Runs
After hitting only two homers through April, Cabrera has exploded this May. He has smacked five homers in 16 games this month to go along with 24 RBIs. Miggy is finally starting to wake up for fantasy fans and that is pretty scary.
2014 Stats: .316 AVG, .357 OBP, 7 HRs, 39 RBIs, 22 Runs
Donaldson's 2013 season (.301 AVG, 24 HRs) was somewhat surprising, but he has followed it up with a brilliant start to the 2014 season. He has already clubbed 10 long balls and the third baseman is third in the league with 38 runs.
2014 Stats: .280 AVG, .362 OBP, 10 HRs, 35 RBIs, 38 Runs
Stanton is finally having that breakout fantasy season. He is leading the league with 43 RBIs and is tied for third in homers. The Miami Monster is currently the number one outfielder in all of fantasy.
2014 Stats: .318 AVG, .405 OBP, 12 HRs, 43 RBIs, 29 Runs
Many owners were scared about adding Cruz this off-season after a lengthy 50-game PED suspension to end the 2013 season. However, the veteran has been abusing the ball this season and seems primed to have a 35 HR/100 RBI season.
2014 Stats: .273 AVG, .33 OBP, 12 HRs, 37 RBIs, 25 Runs
After starting the 2014 season by reaching base in the first 38 games, Joey Batts was a shoe-in to make this list.
2014 Stats: .294 AVG, .433 OBP, 11 HRs, 30 RBIs, 35 Runs
Blackmon's 6-for-6 performance in the opening week of the season quickly put the outfielder on the map. His average may slowly be leveling out, but the veteran continues to hit for power and score runs.
2014 Stats: .339 AVG, .376 OBP, 9 HRs, 32 RBIs, 35 Runs
Cueto has been absolutely untouchable this season. The veteran has a sizzling 1.25 ERA and has reestablished himself as a true fantasy ace.
2014 Stats: 72 IP, 4-2, 1.25 ERA, 0.71 WHIP, 76 K's
Tanaka has lived up to the hype this season. He hasn't lost a single game and has shockingly struck out 10.24 hitters though nine innings of work. This will be the first of many All-Star appearances for Ma-Kun.
2014 Stats: 58 IP, 6-0, 2.17 ERA, 0.91 WHIP, 66 K's
Year after year, Wainwright continues to anchor fantasy rotations. The veteran is off to a quick 6-2 start and his 2.11 ERA is as good as it gets.
2014 Stats: 64 IP, 6-2, 2.11 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, 56 K's
After a Cy Young performance last year, Scherzer has mirrored his 2013 numbers. The right-hander has already struck out 73 batters in 59.1 innings and has surpassed Justin Verlander as the team's ace.
2014 Stats: 59 IP, 6-1, 1.83 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, 73 K's
Despite all the attention on Clayton Kershaw and his new 0 million contract, Greinke has been the team's ace this fantasy season. He is tied for the league-lead with seven wins to go along with a glimmering 2.03 ERA.
2014 Stats: 53.1 IP, 7-1, 2.03 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, 61 K's
Hudson has been the surprise of San Fran's rotation this season. He was a waiver wire pickup in many leagues this spring, but he has once again emerged as a legitimate fantasy hurler.
2014 Stats: 60.1 IP, 4-2, 2.09 ERA, 0.81 WHIP, 38 K's
Rodriguez stole the closer role from Jim Henderson this spring and he hasn't looked back. K-Rod is currently leading the league with 17 saves and is the number one closer in fantasy right now.
2014 Stats: 23 IP, 17 Saves, 1.57 ERA, 0.78 WHIP, 28 K's
Street is having a resurgent fantasy season and the veteran has earned a spot on the early All-fantasy team.
2014 Stats: 18 IP, 13 Saves, 0.50 ERA, 0.78 WHIP,
