I know he's only hitting .237 on the season, but I was surprised when Twins second baseman Brian Dozier was not selected to the AL All-Star Team. He draws enough walks to have a solid on-base percentage (.338), he hit home runs (16), he steals bases (16) and he's excellent on the field. What more do you want?

Don't believe me that he's excellent in the field? Check out this great play from Saturday afternoon:

It's not often you see a second baseman throw a runner out at the plate -- by several steps -- from shallow center field. The Rockies actually challenged the play and asked for a review, but replays confirmed the safe call.

Great play by Dozier. Real heads up.
