France is now going there for the first time in his brief career after making it to the final vote to decide who begins the All-Star Game but losing to Vladimir Guerrero. And for him to get to this point, it’s been a hectic week. When the reserves were revealed on July 10, France was completely excluded from the roster despite being in second place in the fan-only voting at first base. Then, owing to varied replacement strategies, J.D. Martinez and Corey Seager, respectively, were substituted for Yordan Alvarez and George Springer this week when they withdrew.
