Halfway into the 2014 MLB season, the Toronto Blue Jays (45-39) hold the top spot in the American League East. This record wouldn’t be possible if several players on the team hadn’t stepped up and delivered All-Star-caliber performances.
This makes the Blue Jays one of the few teams in the league to boast multiple players that could make a successful case to be selected to represent the American League during the upcoming All-Star game in Minnesota.
Indeed, Toronto already has two players that are favorites to be starters at the Midsummer Classic and two more players that should probably get in as reserves.
Let’s take a look at each of the Blue Jays’ All-Star Game candidates.
