3) Mets starting pitcher Kodai Senga won't get an All-Star spot

It has been a sort of up and down season for Japanese rookie pitcher Kodai Senga. He has shown that he can be a dominating starting pitcher but also at some points has been rocky. I think after his last handful starts has shown that he can possibly be an All-Star pitcher, but I don't think it will happen this year.

He will have his opportunities to make All-Star appearances but Senga has shown that he can be a bit inconsistent at times. His walks are still an issue that needs to be worked out and just like the NL's infielder and outfield, there are a bunch of other pitchers in the National League that have had a much better season which will make it hard for Senga to get a selection in the game.

Pitchers like Zac Gallen for the Diamondbacks and Zack Wheeler for the Phillies have been having great years for their teams. Also for the Atlanta Braves. Spencer Strider has been pitching great for the Braves as well and former Met Marcus Stroman for the Cubs too has been lights out too pitching a one-hitter in his last start.

Senga has been pitching well as a of late in particular in his last outing against the Phillies on Monday only giving up one hit in seven innings striking out nine which got Mets fans excited about what else he bring to the table. He still needs to do that more consistently which is his main problem but hes' been having an under the radar rookie season that should deserve him a spot on the NL All-Star roster but I don't think it will happen this season.
