On the whole, Cueto has been the best pitcher in baseball this season and deserves to be the All-Star starter. All signs point to his being ineligible for that role in the end, though, so I don’t expect to see him actually take the mound at Target Field.
Prediction: Named starter for All-Star game, but doesn’t pitch
