Every year about this time the All-Star Selection talk heats up. This year is no different and the LA Angels have a few potential candidates for the All-Star team.
Unlike in the past couple of seasons when the LA Angels only had one all-star, Mike Trout, this season the Angels could possibly have three all-star selections. Here in this post we are going to examine and analyze the players on the current Angel team who have a chance to be chosen to represent the American League in the 2019 All-Star Game to be played in Cleveland on July 9th, 2019.
The Angels last had multiple all-star selections in 2015 when Mike Trout, Albert Pujols, and Hector Santiago and in 2014 Mike Trout and Erick Aybar were selected. Mike Trout has made the all-star team all seven years he has been in the majors, with six of those years Trout was a starter. In 2017 Trout’s thumb injury kept him from playing in the Mid-Summer Classic.
Hopefully this season Trout will have company with some of his Angel teammates joining them. In the grand scheme of things it does not matter how many all-stars a team sends to the game, but it is still nice to see multiple selections from your favorite team.
So without any further adieu here are the Angels potential all-star candidates.
