So, every team has to have at least one representative for the All Star game, right? But what would happen if a random team (the cubs) only had one all star (Travis Wood) and that player was traded? Would another player be nominated? Not super important, just interested.

Question About All Stars
Posted 08 July 2013 - 03:43 PM
Some googling led me to this: http://sports.yahoo....=fantasy,175753
"The Pirates could be without an All-Star if Sanchez is flipped before Tuesday. According to an email from Pat Courtney, MLB vice president of public relations, the All-Star manager would not be obligated to take anyone from the club. The Bucs could simply go starless. (H/T, Pirates Report). This scenario is somehow more cruel than when a team's lone All-Star is injured and thus unavailable. If Sanchez is dealt, the Pirates will have...nothing. Just a pile of LaRoches. They'll have one fewer All-Star than the 24-win Nationals. How sad. "
That being said, I wouldn't be surprised if Gregg gets named to the team if a couple pitchers drop out.
