I put his chances of being voted by D’backs’ fans as the same as Kershaw: none. Though not a division rival, there is one reason why he has no shot. On May 30th of last year, one of Cueto’s fastballs broke the hand of Pollock, sidelining him for three months. It also likely cost A.J. an All-Star spot, as he was having a career year. If Kershaw gets 1%, Cueto gets 1.002%.
