How many Phillies make an appearance during the Midsummer Classic?

Phillies and the All-Star Game don’t typically go hand-in-hand, especially during their recent rebuilding efforts. Since 2014 the club has only sent one player as a representative, those being Pat Neshek, Jonathan Papelbon, Odubel Herrera, and Chase Utley.

Even the year prior, Dominic Brown and Cliff Lee were nothing fantastic in terms of representatives. Gone are the days when the club had five players on the National League roster, such as 2011 when Roy Halladay, Cole Hamels, Lee, Placido Polanco, and Shane Victorino played in Arizona.

Appearing to be on the closing end of a rebuild the Phillies stand to have multiple representatives in the nation’s capital. Here are three who have a legitimate shot at representing Philadelphia.
