The announcements were made for the 2024 All-Star Game rosters for both the American and National League. The SF Giants have both Logan Webb and Heliot Ramos on the roster, but there were 3 Giants that were clearly snubbed.

3 most egregious SF Giants players snubbed in 2024 All-Star game

Both Webb and Ramos are very deserved All-Stars. Webb has been phenomenal yet again for the Giants and his remarkable consistency should not be taken for granted. With how turbulent the pitching staff has been all year, having an ace that you can rely on to go out and more likely than not give you a quality start and go deep into a game is such a valuable asset.

In the case of Ramos, he has really kept the team afloat since he has been called up. His 41 RBI since being called up are among the most of any MLB player in that timespan. He is finally playing like the player we thought he could be when the Giants drafted him in the first round.

The Giants should be happy to have such great All-Star representation, but there is a case to be made that they should have even more. Let's look at 3 players that were snubbed.

1. Matt Chapman

Matt Chapman has been very solid for the Giants this season. While he has been far from perfect, he has carried the team at times with his bat and his defense has been incredible overall. His offensive stats do not fly off the page with a slash line of .244/.327/.423 with 12 homers and 42 RBI but those are very respectable. He is already close to surpassing his home run and RBI totals from last year so he has been a good investment.

He has also made numerous web gem plays for the team on a regular basis including an insane bare-handed play to end a game at Citi Field earlier in the season. Having a guy out there who plays just about every day (he has played in 88/90 games this season) and is a consistent presence both at third base and in the middle of the order is invaluable.

Plus, there is a case to be made that he is more deserving of a reserve infielder spot on the NL team than third baseman Ryan McMahon and first baseman Pete Alonso whose offensive numbers are only modestly better.

Players drop out and injuries happen so there is still a chance that Chapman could get the nod especially with Mookie Betts being injured.

Now let's turn to two Giants relievers who should have gotten an All-Star nod.
