Snell was a glaring omission when the All-Star teams were announced on Sunday. The Rays pitcher is 12-4 with a 2.09 ERA and 132 strikeouts this season. His ERA is second in MLB only behind Jacob deGrom among starters. Not only should Snell have been named to the team, but many expected him to be in the mix to start for the AL squad.

Chris Archer, a teammate of Snell on the Rays, took his colleagues to task for the omission.
