Michael Conforto Is Not On The All-Star Ballot
Yesterday, Major League Baseball released the ballot for the 2017 All-Star Game, which will be played at Marlins Park on July 11. A fan vote will determine the eight starters on each side and the designated hitter for the American League. The ballot features eight Mets and includes breakout players, long-shots, no-shots, and one notable omission. 

Notable Omission: Michael Conforto
.333/.308/.700, 0.8 bWAR, 1.3 fWAR
In a season that’s seen injury after injury, Michael Conforto not being on the All-Star ballot only feels like a gut punch. Thus far, Conforto has been the Mets’ most dangerous hitter, driving the ball to all fields with a swing as sweet as cotton candy.
