Not many things are going right for the Tampa Bay Rays this year, but they still have some talent worthy enough for an All-Star game roster spot. Take a look at five players who belong on the All-Star team.

Mcgee has been tremendous in the bullpen for the Rays, especially after a rough 2013 season. His 1.39 ERA and .164 average against have been vital to the Rays. He also hasn't let up a home run thus far in 2014. He would be a great addition to the American League roster.

Archer is enjoying another great season with the Rays, sitting at 4-4 with a 3.14 ERA with 79 strikeouts in 86 innings. Archer is one of those pitchers who is really going to develop with age and could become a top of the line 2nd or 3rd starter. He could absolutely see more All-Star games in his future.

3. Evan Longoria

Longoria might be struggling a bit in the power department, but the rest of his stats are right in line with his career numbers. Longoria is always a threat to go deep and his defense is something worth watching. While his numbers may not be the best, .268 average, nine home runs and 34 RBIs, he could certainly contribute during the All-Star game.

Price hasn't been as effective as prior years, but man, can he still blow a pitch by hitters. Striking out 133 batters in 115 innings so far is a true testament of that fact. He's on pace to end up with 222. I don't care what your ERA is, striking out 222 batters is All-Star worthy.

Love the pick or hate this pick, he's been the most consistent bat in the lineup all year long. Hitting .280 with three home runs and 36 RBIs on a poor offensive team will do that to you. His average and RBIs lead the Rays, which might be a statement on how poor the offense has been. But every team must be represented, Loney could be that man.
