Five for Friday: Orioles' top five most unlikely All-Stars of past 15 years

Three Orioles appeared in the MLB All-Star Game in Kansas City on Tuesday. It was a landmark achievement for an organization that has struggled to remain relevant in recent years, and hasn't made the playoffs since 1997. In that 15-year stretch of futility, Baltimore has had a lone representative 10 times. And even in the occasional years when it has fielded multiple All-Stars, the players haven't always been household names. So with that in mind, let's take a look at the Orioles' most unlikely All-Star selections since they last made the postseason. My criteria for compiling this list was pretty basic. I simply looked through a year-by-year database of their All-Star selections, and investigated the careers of the organization's less-heralded members. Players with one Orioles All-Star appearance were considered. -- Connor Letourneau
