4) Wilson Ramos
Wilson Ramos was on the 2018 American League All-Star roster and he could make a return to the summer’s biggest exhibition game in 2019. Veteran All-Star locks like Yadier Molina and Buster Posey are getting older and may pave the way for Ramos to sneak in.
Most important of all, Ramos will need to stay healthy. Staying on the field is key to making his first trip to the All-Star Game in an orange and blue cap.
In 2016, Noah Syndergaard was selected to the NL All-Star roster. It was the first and only trip to the game he has made thus far in his young career. In 2019, there’s a great chance he goes back.
As with Ramos and everyone else, staying on the field is important for Syndergaard. Thor made only 32 starts over the last two seasons. A strong start to 2019 should put him at the forefront of contending for a spot on the All-Star roster.
2) Edwin Diaz
Edwin Diaz exploded onto the national stage last year with the Seattle Mariners in his first All-Star season. His 1.96 ERA and league-leading 57 saves made him a household name for baseball fans everywhere.
Regardless of the situation he’s in, Diaz should have another All-Star worthy season. The only thing stopping him would be if other Mets look more deserving.
1) Jacob deGrom
The lone Mets representative at the 2018 All-Star Game, we should get to see Jacob deGrom go back in 2019. He now has two All-Star selections. In 2019, a third is likely.
deGrom is undoubtedly a top three pitcher in the league and a top five ace in all of baseball. While he won’t have the same historic success he did last year, he’ll continue to pitch amazing.
