Good news for Dozier's All-Star prospects--Pedroia will be on the Disabled List almost until the All-Star Game. Dozier holds an overall statistical edge over him anyway, but with the injury Dozier will have the edge in all the counting numbers. If three second basemen make the club, it will be the winner of the votes (perhaps Altuve) plus Kipnis and Dozier should be a third pick. I think he's one of the top 30 players in the AL.

All-Star selection will be after this weekend's games. ESPN just had six writers name their All-Star team and Dozier was on all six (as was Perkins). However, we still have those pesky ballots to worry about. Infante still leads the voting, and if he wins it, Dozier would have to picked over Altuve of the 'stros to be the third second baseman. If Altuve wins, Dozier would figure to be the third second baseman and I think the league and Yost would take three second basemen. Oddly, a vote for Altuve looks to be a vote to get Dozier on the All-Star team.
