The 91st edition of the All-Star Game is scheduled for July 13th. The game was initially set to take place in Atlanta but was moved after a protest of Georgia’s restrictive new restrictive voting law that dialed back voting access. Coors Field now has the honor of hosting the Midsummer Classic for the second time. The Chicago White Sox would like to see lots of players make it this year.

The Chicago White Sox would love to have lots of all-stars in 2021.

The games best will head to Denver to showcase their talent in front of a nationally televised audience. A couple of Chicago White Sox will be included among this group. The Chicago White Sox are rolling. They are in the midst of a four-game winning streak and now sit atop of the AL Central standings. The White Sox have the lowest starting pitcher ERA in baseball as well as the best run differential.

With that type of success comes recognition. The All-Star game will soon be upon us and the White Sox are in line to have multiple All-Stars this season. In 2019 they had three when James McCann, Jose Abreu, and Lucas Giolito all earned bids. They represented the White Sox well with McCann slapping a single and Giolito throwing a scoreless inning.

The White Sox lineup is filled with former All-Stars. Jose Abreu has made three trips to the All-Star game while Yasmani Grandal and Dallas Keuchel each have a pair of appearances under their belt. Liam Hendriks, Lance Lynn, and Jake Lamb have also made trips to the All-Star game.

The White Sox still have some young talent itching to make their first All-Star. Players like Tim Anderson, Yoan Moncada, Eloy Jimenez, Luis Robert, Dylan Cease, and Michael Kopech are all in line to get the nod in the not-to-distant future. Here is who has the best odds to punch their tickets to Colorado on July 13th for the Chicago White Sox.
