Left Field – Michael Conforto in 2017

Michael Conforto is tough to include here because of how many different outfield spots he played in 2017. I’m going to give him the representation of left field as it’s the spot he played in the actual 2017 All-Star Game.

Conforto spent the year playing all over the outfield for the Mets in the regular season. He’s still doing it now, helping to make him a dangerous weapon.

If we went to consider only guys who strictly played left field as a primary position, Yoenis Cespedes wins one year earlier with his 2016 trip to the All-Star Game.

Second Base – Daniel Murphy in 2014

Daniel Murphy made his first and only trip to the All-Star Game as a member of the Mets in 2014. No other second baseman has gone there since.

Prior to Murphy, you have to travel back to 2000 when Edgardo Alfonzo went to the All-Star Game as a second baseman. The 14-year drought may feel long. Just wait until you see how long we’ve waited to see a Mets player at one position play in the summer’s biggest exhibition.

Third Base – David Wright in 2013

Often, any time a list about great Mets is made, you will see David Wright’s name appear. While this isn’t a list of greats, it is one of the notable accomplishments by players in the organization.

Wright’s final All-Star appearance took place in 2013 when he also started in the All-Star Game at Citi Field. There wasn’t much of a drought as he was there one year prior as well.
