J.D. Davis will be selected to the All-Star Game

In the event Davis reaches the two previously mentioned feats in 2021, on top of his consistently high career OBP, JD stands a good chance of being selected to the All-Star Game.

If this were to happen, it would be the first All-Star selection for Davis for his career, which to any player is a great notch on his belt.

While the All-Star game itself is mainly a symbolic game and players are voted on by fans, for Davis to be selected would signal that he has risen to the point of being recognized as one of the top third basemen in the league.

Not only that, he’d be the first third baseman from the Mets since David Wright 2013, breaking an 8-year drought for the Mets at that position.

On top of that, if Davis were to earn a selection, in addition to Pete Alonso, Jeff McNeil and Francisco Lindor rounding out the Mets’ infield, all four of their starting infielders would be former (or hopefully current) All-Stars.

In the hunt for October and a hopeful World Series victory, if Davis seizes his opportunity in 2021 and reaches his potential, the Mets should have a real asset in him for years to come.
