The official announcement of the 2014 NL All-Star roster will come on Sunday night, but National League skipper Mike Matheny told MLB.com's Alex Halstead that his roster is "all set."
The Cardinals' manager said he considered both fan and player votes on the makeup of the roster when deciding on which players to add in addition to those who are voted onto the team.
"We would love as many guys as we could possibly get," Williams said. "I certainly think the back three guys of the bullpen have the numbers to substantiate a serious look there. I haven't received any phone calls or talked to anyone about it, but I think they have [an] opportunity. They should anyway. And we've got a couple of position guys [who] have a potential opportunity there too. We'd like to see as many as we could."
Storen, 26, is (2-1) with a 1.03 ERA, 2.62 FIP, four walks (1.37 BB/9) and 22 Ks (7.52 K/9) in 31 games and 26 ⅓ IP over which he's been worth +0.5 fWAR so far in 2014.
Clippard, 29, is (5-2) with a save, a 1.95 ERA, a 2.46 FIP, 16 walks (3.89 BB/9) and 49 Ks (11.92 K/9) in 40 games and 37 IP over which he's been worth +0.9 fWAR.
Soriano, 34, is (1-0) with 20 saves in 22 opportunities, a 1.06 ERA, 2.58 FIP, 11 walks (2.91 BB/9) and 32 Ks (8.47 K/9) in 34 appearances and 34 IP over which he's been worth +0.7 fWAR.
LaRoche, 34, has put up a .297/.402/.490 line with 10 doubles and 12 HRs in 68 games and 286 PAs over which he's been worth +1.3 fWAR.
Rendon, 24, has a .280/.337/.477 line with 18 doubles, five triples and 12 HRs in 81 games and 360 PAs over which he's been worth +2.9 fWAR, which currently leads the Nationals in Wins Above Replacement.
LaRoche leads the Nationals in wRC+ (which as Fangraphs defines it, attempts "...to quantify a player’s total offensive value and measure it by runs."), at 151 wRC+ so far this season to Rendon's 126 wRC+.
So, if you were in Mike Matheny's position, which Nationals would you take?
