Pat Neshek Is The Only Option to Represent The Phillies In The All-Star Game
Pat Neshek might be the lone bright spot on the Phillies in the 2017 season. With the MLB All-Star game less than a month away, The best of the best players are starting to rise to the top. Neshek came into the season off pitching 5 scoreless innings for the United States World Baseball Classic team.
Neshek has managed to pitch 24 innings only allowing 2 earned runs with an ERA of 0.75 so far this season. I can’t see the all-star coaches looking at this roster and selecting any other player. If or when Pat is selected this will be his 2nd all-star selection. Pat Neshek was an all-star in 2014 when he played for the Cardinals.
To begin the season I thought maybe Franco could get that backup third base slot or even Hector Neris getting the nod from having a stellar season out of the bullpen. I also thought Cesar Hernandez got off to a good start and could have maybe made the roster, but he is injured now and that seem likely not to happen.
So who do you think will get the all-star nod for the Phillies if not Pat Neshek.
