The Milwaukee Brewers streak of sending five players to the annual MLB All-Star Game has come to an end. Since 2018, the Brewers had sent five players to the Mid-Summer Classic (excluding 2020 when there was no All-Star Game). This year, Corbin Burnes and Josh Hader will represent Milwaukee at the All-Star Game at Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles.
Corbin Burnes Is Dominating Again
The reigning National League Cy Young Award winner is having an even better year in 2022 than he did last season.
- 2021 (28 starts): 11-5, 2.43 ERA, 234 strikeouts, 0.94 WHIP
- 2022 (17 starts): 7-4, 2.20 ERA, 134 strikeouts (leads the National League), 0.89 WHIP
This will be the second consecutive All-Star appearance for Corbin Burnes. In last year’s contest, Burnes was the losing pitcher of record. He pitched two innings, allowed four hits and two runs, including a home run to Vladimir Guerrero Jr.
Josh Hader Earns His Fourth All-Star Appearance
Similar to Burnes, there was no doubt that Josh Hader would be named as an All-Star this season. He is the reigning National League Reliever of the Year, an award he has won three out of the past four seasons (Devin Williams won it in 2020). Also like Burnes, Hader is arguably having a better season this year than he did in his latest award-winning campaign:
- 2021 (60 games): 4-2, 1.23 ERA, 34 saves, 102 strikeouts, 0.84 WHIP
- 2022 (30 games): 0-2, 1.88 ERA, 26 saves (leads all MLB), 49 strikeouts, 0.90 WHIP
This will be Josh Hader’s fourth trip to the All-Star Game. He was named an All-Star in 2018, 2019, and 2021 (again, there was no All-Star Game in 2020, the year Hader led the National League in saves).
