The 2017 Phillies have an all-star. Well, of course they do – every team has to have an all-star, even the team that holds the worst record in baseball by a cool four games.
Anyway, Pat Neshek is the Phils’ lone all-star.
The middle reliever, acquired in a trade during the offseason, has a 1.39 ERA in 32.1 innings. He has struck out 31 and walked four. He’s been very good. He’s a middle reliever.
Congratulations to Neshek.
