With the finalized rosters for both the American and National Leagues announced this past Sunday, the Toronto Blue Jays will have the distinct honour to send four representatives once again to this year’s Midsummer Classic at T-Mobile Park in Seattle.
They unfortunately did not have a starter voted in by the fans this time around, but both Whit Merrifield and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. will be making their third appearance, while Kevin Gausman and Bo Bichette will be making their second appearance at the 2023 All-Star Game.
The Jays have sent four representatives to each of the past three All-Star Games (including this year), but are still quite far away from their record of seven representatives, set back in 1993 during their World Series championship era with the likes of Roberto Alomar, Joe Carter, Paul Molitor, John Olerud and others.
One cannot get too greedy, but at the same time, there had been many other Blue Jays that have been having strong seasons so far in 2023 that should have warranted them a spot on the All-Star roster as well. But with the overflow of talent across the league, as well as within the same ballclub, they have been given the short end of the stick unfortunately.
Here, we take a look at the 3 biggest snubs of Blue Jays players that should have made the Midsummer Classic along with the aforementioned four above.
