Dodgers Snubbed in All-Star Game Reserves Annoucement

The proverbial ball was very much dropped with NL reserves.

MLB announced National League players selected as reserves for July’s All-Star game, and the Dodgers were royally snubbed.

As widely already seen all over social media, the lack of at least Max Muncy, Alex Verdugo, or Justin Turner is causing a bit of an outrage.

NL ASG manager Dave Roberts will likely eventually have the last say, but is notoriously a non-homer (save for bringing his entire coaching staff to the 2018 ASG), so the jury is still out on who will be added. But undoubtedly a Dodger or two WILL be added before July 9th’s contest.

National League pitchers were also announced and included 3 starting pitchers from the team.

Any other Dodgers players announce will join outfield starter Cody Bellinger at the mid-Summer classic.

  1. Max deserves it, Justin and Alex are a not
    ch below others at their position. Go back letting the players vote on all stars.

  2. So tired of these worthless things. Win a championship already. We’ve had enough all stars, cy youngs, mvps, gold gloves etc. I’m glad they got snubbed maybe there will be some extra motivation in October

  3. Tough to make a case for those 3 players. Much better players have been snubbed if you look around.

  4. Well there are only so many roster spots and each team must be represented. At least the AL All Stars must be glad to see a few Dodger pitchers on the squad because look at what they did against Stripling last year. Back to back HR’s to win the game for the AL.

  5. I would add Chris Taylor. He is on FIRE!! He plays hard every game & I like him in center outfield where he plays best next to Cody!!??
