The Tribe should’ve had more players going to the 2021 All-Star Game.

The Indians are sending two of their players to the 2021 All-Star Game. Shane Bieber and Jose Ramirez were picked as All-Star Game reserves for the mid-July showcase. Both players are deserving to go, though Bieber will likely not attend due to an injury he’s currently dealing with. He had put in more than enough time to warrant consideration and his stats are better than many other pitchers with even more innings to their name.

So Bieber going makes all the sense in the world.

As for Ramirez, he’s easily on his way to another MVP-finalist season, helping carry the team through the regular season amid a sea of constantly changing faces all around him. His consistency and health have kept the Tribe in the playoff chase, even during their slump at the halfway point of the season.

Those two are obvious All-Stars and deserved to go but that doesn’t mean they were the only ones who deserved to go. Franmil Reyes was in the midst of an All-Star worthy season but was hindered by injury, while Amed Rosario started off slow and came on strong over the last few months. He’s stabilized a bit but he’s much improved from the first month of the season.

They were just two of the names that could’ve been considered but Reyes’ injury and Rosario’s slow start really hampered them. These next three players though have done more than enough to warrant a spot on the 2021 All-Star Game.
