Mazara, Rangers need boost in All-Star support

June 6th, 2017

ARLINGTON -- Rangers outfielder is surging at the plate but not in voting on the Esurance MLB All-Star Game Ballot. No Texas players have been able to crack the top five at any infield or catching position -- or the top 15 in the outfield -- in the latest All-Star voting update released Tuesday.

Mazara deserves more consideration. He went into Tuesday's game vs. the Mets hitting .341 in his past 22 games to go along with a .413 on-base percentage and a .524 slugging percentage.

For the season, Mazara is hitting .276 with 24 runs scored, six home runs, 35 RBIs, a .344 on-base percentage and a .442 slugging percentage. He leads the Rangers in RBIs.
