Seager’s All-Star case is obvious. He is a three-time All-Star with a career WAR of 25.3 through his first eight seasons. With all that Seager has already accomplished in his career, it’s hard to believe he is still only 28 years old. There is reason to believe that Seager could continue to improve as he enters his prime. Seager will be in the third year of a 10-year, $325 million contract in 2024 and should be a key contributor for the Rangers for years to come barring injury.
Surprisingly, Semien has only been an All-Star one other time through his first ten seasons in the majors. He does have two top-three MVP finishes on his resume and a career WAR of 34.8. He was not an All-Star in 2021, mainly because of a slow start to the season. However he finished strong and ended the season tied for 14th in batting WAR with Freddy Freeman. Look for Semien to add multiple All-Star appearances to his career resume during his time in Texas.
The case: Garcia has an All-Star appearance already in his career. He made the team as a reserve during the 2021 season. He was even better in 2022 and has still only played in 329 career games. He also has a knack for coming through in the clutch and tends to shine brightest during the biggest moments. If El Bombs continues to perform at this level, he will be hard to ignore during All-Star voting.
