NL ALL-STAR STARTERS
Statistics through July 8.
C Willson Contreras, Cubs
Appearance: Age: Why he’s an All-Star:
26 Contreras edged Buster Posey in fan voting at the wire, and has perhaps surpassed the Giants catcher as the premier offensive backstop in the NL.
Contreras made perhaps the best use of an off day this season when he and Andrea Villamizar were married at Chicago’s City Hall on May 4.
