The Mets will have the honor of hosting the 2013 MLB All-Star Game this summer and should have at least three representatives.
The first will be third baseman David Wright, who has been a mainstay in All-Star games since 2006. Wright is currently batting .295 with five home runs and 24 RBI. He has started at third base for the National League in four of his six All-Star appearances, and the likelihood of him starting at third base once again is high.
Catcher John Buck should also be able to find his way to the All-Star Game, especially after having a torrid April, when he he batted .241 with nine home runs and 25 RBI.
Buck carried the Mets offense throughout the month, and if he keeps hitting at a reasonable level, he should be able to get a spot as a backup catcher. The voting for catchers could be competitive, with Buster Posey, Russell Martin and Wilin Rosario being Buck's main competition.
Finally, Matt Harvey looks like a shoe-in to be an All-Star in his first full season. In his first eight starts of the year, Harvey is 4-0 with a 1.44 ERA, 62 strikeouts and a remarkable 0.728 WHIP. Assuming he stays healthy and does not pitch badly in June, Harvey should be an easy All-Star selection.
Closer Bobby Parnell also has a chance to be an All-Star, with a 1.04 ERA in 17 appearances. However, he only has four saves and is far from being the league leader in that category. Unless Parnell racks up a lot of saves in the next two months, he could be on the outside looking in during the All-Star break.
