St. Louis Cardinals: 2016 All-Star Chances
By Landon Clapp
Another guy that isn’t getting a ton of love on the balloting yet. Piscotty is 14th amongst NL outfielders despite his .311/.387/.488 slash line with seven home runs and 33 RBI to boot.

Really, I just don’t think that many people really know how good Piscotty is quite yet. He is far from a household name at this point in his career, and that hurts him in all star considerations.
But, again, a monster June could certainly change that.
One of the consistent All-Stars for the Cardinals over the years has been Matt Holliday. Unfortunately, it would take a monster month for Holliday to make the National League All-Star roster.
Holliday is having a solid season and has definitely been on the up and up lately, but he is too far behind the eight ball to be considered for this game.

Ultimately, this team doesn’t have any dominant stars beyond Yadier Molina. So, it is going to be a stretch for the team to get many starters on the National League roster. As there is an actual game played, this is probably for the better.
