Giancarlo Stanton was named as the DH for the National League at the 2014 All-Star Game that takes place July 15th. Stanton is the only Marlins player named as part of the roster and if it wasn’t for Jose Fernandez being injured, Miami would have had two.
Stanton leads the National League with 21 home runs so you would think that he would’ve been an automatic pick, at least as a reserve. But unfortunately he did not make the fan vote.
But at least Stanton will take part of the 2014 Home Run Derby and put his batting skills to the test!
The 2014 MLB All-Star Game will take place on July 15th in Minneapolis, Minnesota at Target Field, home of the Minneapolis Twins.
