Although he's pitched in relative obscurity for unspectacular Oakland A's teams, he owns a solid 3.82 ERA in 238 major league innings.Below him, Lance Mc Cullers, Jordan Montgomery and Luis Severino are in the middle of big breakout seasons.The latter is a better way to fill out an "All-Star" team, and Trea Turner, Odubel Herrera and Christian Yelich make the grade. Of course, Michael Conforto could take Yelich's place in left field.Turner has been rocked by injury and regression in 2017, but his 2016 outburst as a second baseman/shortstop/center fielder still looms large. But since he mostly lets his bat do the talking, he's a perfect candidate to DH.
Despite producing only 0.3 WAR this year, Joc Pederson has generally been a solid all-around center fielder.But what if they were only the best and the brightest of MLB's young stars? With a 1.203 OPS, 16 home runs and 10 stolen bases through 47 games, he was carrying on as baseball's best player before he injured his thumb in late May.The idea here is to entertain that exact scenario by imagining what the American League and National League All-Star teams would look like if they consisted only of 25-and-under players.

Where things get messy is at the three infield spots beyond first base.Aaron Sanchez has missed much of the year with injuries, but his rise as the AL's ERA champion last year remains difficult to ignore.
There is one tricky spot, as Dylan Bundy actually has the same WAR average as Eduardo Rodriguez.Many fans are speculating if this means she will make her reality TV move over to and if they will eventually get to see the demise of her relationship with Alexis play out this season.
