Who have been the best players in the AL Central this season?

As the MLB season is about to approach the All-Star break with the “first half” of the season ending on Sunday and the All-Star Game taking place on Tuesday, July 15, it is time we look at who an AL Central All-Star team would consist of.

This is the vision I have for the 2014 AL Central All-Star team, at least. I would put this group of players up against any other division in the AL or the NL.

I picked the normal 1-9 batters (including the designated hitter), along with two starting pitchers and two relievers.

Some of the players I chose are in the actual All-Star game, and others have either had their day in the mid-summer classic or one day will get that opportunity.

As for the actual AL Central standings (before Friday’s games), the Detroit Tigers lead the division at 51-37, followed by the Kansas City Royals (47-44), Cleveland Indians (45-46), Chicago White Sox (44-49) and Minnesota Twins (42-49).

Let’s take a look at this version of an AL Central All-Star team.

(Note: All stats are before games played on Friday, July 11.)
