The WAR National League All-Star Team

Now that we have taken a look at the American League All-Star roster (according to WAR), it is time for us to take a look at the National League Roster.

Oh and a quick reminder: these rosters will be made up of the players with the top WAR value; two at each infield position, six outfielders, six starting pitchers, and six relief pitchers. To qualify for these rosters the player must have a minimum of 200 plate appearances at the Major League level. Included in these posted rosters, I will be posting the player’s triple slash lines….and FIPs for the Pitchers.

One thing that immediately jumped out to me, the NL WAR values seem higher for the All-Star team roster…we shall find out in our next post if that’s a legit assumption. That being said, the NL Roster seems a lot more predictable than the American League one. Maybe that’s because the NL teams that are well represented are the players from the teams that are…you know, winning their divisions.
