Colorado Rockies: A look at All-Star snubs throughout their history
In the inaugural season of the franchise, the Rockies only had one All-Star for the game held at Baltimore’s Camden Yards, which was in the second year of existence. That was Andres Galarraga, who was hitting a staggering .391 at the break. The Rockies weren’t very good as they were 33-54 and on pace for a 101 loss season.
However, they had a few other players that could have been All-Stars. Outfielder Dante Bichette finished the first half with very strong numbers.
Another member of the 1993 team that was snubbed was third baseman Charlie Hayes. 1993 was the third baseman’s career year as he led the league with 45 doubles and had 25 home runs, 98 RBI, a .305/.355/.522 slash line, and an OPS+ of 118 in 157 games. He showed strong numbers in the first half as well.
Another potential All-Star could have been starter Armando Reynoso (15 starts, 7-4 record, 3.03 ERA, averaging nearly 7 1/3 innings per start) but he missed much of the month of April so it’s easier to see why the Rockies rookie starter was passed over.
