Philadelphia Phillies second baseman Bryson Stott is having a really good second season. He has been consistent at the plate all year and in my opinion, he’s the Phillies biggest All-Star snub.

The 25 year-old Stott has a .304 batting average with seven home runs, 32 RBIs, 38 runs scored and 15 stolen bases. He has raised his batting average from .234 to .304 this season. That’s almost a 100 point difference.

Stott has the look of a .300 hitter. He’s seeing more pitches per plate appearance. He’s cut down his strikeouts. Stott has a line-drive approach, hits the ball to all fields, works counts, spoils pitchers’ pitches to extend at-bats.

Stott has been hitting in the sixth spot in the Phillies batting order. He is hitting one spot ahead of Alec Bohm and the two of them have become a productive part of the lineup.

Bryson Stott should have been selected to this year’s All-Star team. He’s earned a spot. I have a feeling that he will be making trips to the All-Star in the near future.
