If selections were made around Memorial Day instead of the Fourth of July, Kansas City's Alex Gordon would probably have been a shoo-in to make the All-Star team for the first time.
The two-time Gold Glove winner as the American League's best defensive left fielder, Gordon was hitting .352 on May 22 and was still at .338 on Memorial Day. He ticked up to .340 by May 29.
