Even though the Arizona Diamondbacks are struggling thus far in 2014, the team has five players who could be great additions to the 2014 All-Star game. Let's take a look at what they could offer.

By far the Diamondbacks' most reliable reliever, Ziegler carries a 3-1 record with a 2.58 ERA. Ziegler's solid season for the Diamondbacks should be rewarded with an All-Star bid as he continues to be the rock in the bullpen.

Owings is putting together a solid first season with the Diamondbacks. The 23-year-old is batting .283 with six home runs and 20 RBIs to go along with seven stolen bases. A first year All-Star bid could do wonders for the kid's confidence and he would continue to put up some impressive numbers.

3. A.J. Pollock

How about A.J. Pollock? He's been one of the nice surprises of the 2014 Diamondbacks with his impressive .316 average to go along with six home runs and 15 RBIs. The most impressive stat though is his on-base percentage, which sits at .366. On pace to shatter all his career-high numbers, Pollock is deserving of an All-Star spot.

Now we start getting into the obvious choices. Montero is always a consistent producer for the Diamondbacks and this year is no different. Hitting .271 with 10 home runs and 40 RBIs absolutely puts him in a position to get a spot on the team.

No surprise here. Goldschmidt is the reason to watch a Diamondbacks game. He would also be a great reason to watch the All-Star game. Concern over whether he could produce like he did last season have quickly been dispelled as he's hitting .308 with 15 home runs and 52 RBIs. He's going to be a real force in baseball for many years to come, with many more All-Star bids to go with it.
