Giancarlo Stanton: All Star

Monday, July 2, 2012

Sr. #Monsterdong is an All Star:
Giancarlo Stanton will have a busy All-Star break. In addition to appearing in the July 9th Home Run Derby, he will be a reserve outfielder on the NL All-Star team the next night. Stanton was selected to his first All-Star Game Sunday by NL manager Tony La Russa.

The 22-year-old Stanton is the Marlins' only representative this year. "If one thing is very bright for us, it's him," Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen told the Miami Herald.

Stanton is batting .282 this season, and he hit his 19th home run of the season on Sunday. His .916 OPS leads the team, and only Omar Infante has a better average among the Marlins.
This was a no-brainer, as Stanton was the only real candidate among the underachieving Marlins. Omar Infante has had a good first half, but if the Marlins were to only have one representative in Kansas City, I'd rather it be Stanton.

We'll have an abbreviated Week in Review up later.
