At least one member of the 2019 New York Mets will make the trip to Cleveland on July 9th to play in the All-Star Game. Let’s rank their chances.

The 2019 MLB All-Star Game will take place on July 9 in Cleveland. We can guarantee at least one member of the New York Mets will be there as MLB requires all teams to have at least one representative.

Although we’re far from knowing what the 2019 Opening Day roster will look like, we can already gauge who is and who isn’t likely to make the National League All-Star roster. The Mets have plenty of new players on the roster who have made the trip before. Will they do it in a new cap?

In considering every member of the organization, I’ve put together a power ranking of All-Star odds for 2019 and given a little reasoning as to why stand a chance or why they’ll get a few days off in mid-July.

26) Everyone fighting for a roster spot in Spring Training

This group includes players such as Rajai Davis, J.D. Davis, Danny Espinosa, and the rest of the depth additions the Mets made this winter. I don’t think anyone believes they have a snowball’s chance in my heart (the warmest place I could think of) at making an All-Star appearance in 2019.

25, 24, 23) Travis d’Arnaud, Keon Broxton, Juan Lagares

This trio is tied for the “last place” spot of men who should make the 25-man roster. As the backup catcher, Travis d’Arnaud will need a lot of things to go his way to even have a spot on the ballot. Keon Broxton and Juan Lagares will likely share time in center field so their at-bats will take away from their odds.

Even if any of the three do log appearances every game, none are talented enough to make the All-Star team.
