This is the 11th straight season that the Reds have had multiple All-Stars.

MLB: Cincinnati Reds at Los Angeles Dodgers Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

For the first time since Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips started together in 2013, the Cincinnati Reds will have two starters in the All-Star Game.

Both Jesse Winker and Nick Castellanos have both put together incredible seasons for the Reds and were rewarded by being named starters in the 2021 All-Star Game. Winker, hitting .325/.404/.596 has already topped his career-high in home runs (19) and RBI (48). He ranks seventh in all of baseball in batting average and has the fourth best on-base percentage in the Majors. Castellanos has arguably been even better. He’s slashing .346/.396/.607 and leads the Majors in batting average, hits, and doubles. This is the first appearance in the All-Star Game for both Winker and Castellanos. Congrats to both of them.
