Garza has made just two appearances since returning from injury, but he's looked good, shutting down two quality offensive clubs. He probably won't make the All-Star team, but there's no denying he's pitched at a high level since coming back.

It'll be hard for Milwaukee's closer to standout amongst his competition and actually make the All-Star team, but he's converted 19 of his 20 save opportunities and has been a steady and consistent contributor for the Brewers.

There's always tough competition at shortstop, but Villar has been impressive this season, hitting close to .300 and providing a fair amount of power. It would not be undeserved to see him earning a reserve role on the NL All-Star team.

Lucroy will most likely be Milwaukee's All-Star this season, as he continues to assert himself as one of the best catchers in baseball. His defense is solid and he does more offensively than just about any catcher in the game.
