The Atlanta Braves are playing well for the second straight season. They are currently first in the division. The team as a whole has played, but there are a few guys having a great start to the season. These guys deserve your all-star vote.
Dansby Swanson is finally playing like a number one draft pick. The guy is on fire right now, he’s hitting .266 this year and has 13 homeruns. He’s not having the the year he had last year at short, but he’s not playing bad in the field either. Dansby has worked hard this offseason to improve at the plate and it has shown. Vote Dansby.
This is obvious, but it still has to be said. Freddie Freeman is an allstar, the guy is tearing it up right now. Thats nothing new for him though, If he gets voted in (which he 100% should) it’ll be his 4th allstar game. This year really feels like an MVP caliber season for him, he’s showing that he’s the best first baseman in the league. Vote for Freddie.
Last season’s Rookie of the Year is off to another hot start. His slash line sits at .287/.366/.495. He’s an electric ball player, he is a five-tool player. The perfect combination of speed and power, it’s a no-doubter he’s an all-star. Vote ACUÑA!
Surprisingly the 35 year-old catcher B-Mac is having a career year. He’s hitting .286 in what could be his final season. He’s helped our young pitchers tremendously and he’s a great leader in the club house. Brian McCann is back in a brave uniform and he’s playing great, that should make Braves fans happy. If voted in it would be his first all-star appearance since 2013. Vote for Brian McCann, he’s a stud.
Ozzie Albies, the switch hitting second baseman is playing really good to start 2019. Albies is hitting .279 with 10 homers. He’s also been playing at an elite level defensively. It wouldn’t surprise me if he won a Gold Glove this year. Ozzie is a spark plug in the braves lineup and is exciting to watch. Vote for him to be a 2019 all-star.
Even though you can’t vote for these guys, I still believe thier efforts should be recognized in this article.
This guy has got it figured out, he has a 1.92 ERA at 21 years-old. Forget making the all-star game, he might start it. The kid is filthy and has elite command, leaving hitters baffled. Not much more to be said than that.
Julio is pitching good, nobody is saying it so I will. Everyone is quick to hate on him, but he’s got a 2.94 ERA and a 5-4 record. He’s a real solid pitcher, no one calls him elite because he isn’t. This year though, I believe he’s playing like an all-star.
