Freddie Freeman vs Mike Trout , who is better ?
Perhaps the most surprising All-Star snub the MLB saw this year was Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Freddie Freeman. Los Angeles picked up Freeman this past offseason and he has since been nothing short of great for the Dodgers.
Through 85 games played for the Dodgers this year, Freeman is batting .304 with a .875 OPS. He is also one of just seven players to have over 100 hits this season.
The other six were all named to the All-Star game. He is also on one of the best teams in the MLB, with the Dodgers being 56-29 on the year so far.
The Dodgers are also hosting the All-Star game this season as well.
It is an absolute travesty that we will not see Freddie Freeman participate in the All-Star game at his home stadium.
Despite being unable to compete in the 2022 MLB All-Star Game on Tuesday at Dodger Stadium, Angels star Mike Trout stole the show at Media Day on Monday, announcing he’ll compete and serve as captain for Team USA in the 2023 World Baseball Classic.
“I’m looking forward to playing for our country,” said the three-time American League MVP, who landed on the injured list Monday with left rib cage inflammation. “It means a lot to me and my family to represent our country. It’s going to be awesome to have ‘USA’ across my chest. It really means a lot to me. It’s going to be fun.”
