The Miami Marlins may be a young team, but it doesn't mean they lack talent. Check out five Marlins who could make the 2014 All-Star Game.
A.J. Ramos is having a fantastic season pitching in relief for the Marlins. His 2.43 ERA and .193 average against are a good reflection of that. He would be an effective sixth or seventh-inning pitcher in relief for the National League Team.
Henderson Alvarez has been a nice surprise for the Marlins this year. While his record sits at 4-3, the real telling stats are his 2.39 ERA and his 1.27 WHIP. Wins can sometimes be hard to come by on the Marlins, but Alvarez is doing all he can to keep his team in the game. An All-Star bid would be great for the 24 year old.
While Casey McGehee's power is MIA, he's doing everything else right for the Marlins. His 44 RBIs to go along with his .310 average and .374 on-base percentage has been a great bargain for the Marlins. He would be a great hitter to see in the seven or eight hole to potentially knock in a couple runs.
Steve Cishek just seems to keep getting better and better. He's a closer that any team would love to have and would be such a solid addition to the All-Star roster. His 1.99 ERA to go along with 17 saves on the year means lights out for the American League roster. The kid deserves his spot this year.
It wouldn't be an All-Star Game without one of the game's most exciting players. Giancarlo Stanton continues to do what he does best, and that's rip the cover off the baseball. Stanton is on pace for career highs in almost every offensive category, and he can display those reasons at the All-Star Game. It's scary to think what this kid could do with potent offensive surrounding him every day.
