On the season, first baseman C.J. Cron has hit 11 home runs and 31 RBI with a slash line of .249/.347/.459 with an OPS+ of 111. That OPS+ is the highest of anyone on the Rockies and the slugging percentage is second-only to Ryan McMahon.
The case against Cron is that he has only played in 66 games, whereas Story has played in 69 games and McMahon has played in 79 games. He also is behind Max Muncy, Freddie Freeman, and Pete Alonso in almost every offensive category.
In other words, his chances are diminished a lot because of their play.
I think I can speak for a lot of people when I say that if you would have told me that Daza’s name would be in All-Star consideration in 2021, I would have a) thought you were nuts or b) would have thought it would be with another team because that would not be shocking at all.
However, Daza has been phenomenal for the Rockies and particularly phenomenal in the second spot in the lineup.
Overall on the season, Daza is hitting .315/.357/.406 with an OPS+ of 102 in 72 games for the Rockies. He has been a well above-average defender as well, which was expected but the bat has been the key to his success.
