With a .221 average, Stanton is having a bit of a down year. But he's still hitting home runs, drawing walks and driving in runs, resulting in an .835 OPS. He'd still be an asset for the National League in the All-Star Game

Ozuna is in the running for a spot on the All-Star team and for Comeback Player of the Year after a disastrous 2015 season. He's hitting over .300 and has a healthy .867 OPS, which puts him squarely in the All-Star conversation.

Miami's starters have been solid if unspectacular, but there's nothing wrong with the performance of the team's closer. Ramos is a perfect 12-for-12 in save situations, and with a 1.59 ERA he's quietly become one of the best relievers in baseball.

Yelich is having the kind of season the Marlins always hoped he was capable of having. He's hitting .322 with a .955 OPS, performing like the best player in an awfully talented outfield and playing like someone going to the All-Star Game this year.

No one saw this coming from Prado, who may be having the best year of his career. There's little power to speak of, but Prado is a serious contender to win the batting title this year, and that alone makes him an All-Star.
