Miami landed a pair of starters in the 2015 MLB All-Star game but only one will be healthy enough to make the start. Both Giancarlo Stanton and Dee Gordon were selected by voters to represent the Marlins in right field and second base, respectively, but Stanton will sit out as a result of an injured hand.
All of the 2015 mid-summer classic starters were announced on Sunday night:
C: Salvador Perez, Royals
1B: Miguel Cabrera, Tigers
C: Buster Posey, Giants
1B: Paul Goldschmidt, D-backs
2B: Dee Gordon, Marlins
3B: Todd Frazier, Reds
SS: Jhonny Peralta, Cardinals
OF: Bryce Harper, Nationals
OF: Matt Holliday, Cardinals
OF: Giancarlo Stanton, Marlins
Gordon, 27, has had a notable amount of success after being acquired from the Dodgers. He has posted a .343/.364/.423 batting line to complement one (inside the park) home run and 21 RBIs while also stealing 29 bases.
Before going down, Stanton was also thriving offensively. He was batting .265/.346/.606 to complement 27 home runs and 67 RBIs through just 74 contests and anchored the Marlins' offense wherever he was placed in the lineup. However, he ultimately injured his hand and is expected to be out until August.
Both Gordon and Stanton have carried the Marlins' offense and as a result have received the opportunity to represent the club. A.J. Ramos and Adeiny Hechavarria could be considered when full rosters are announced on Monday.
