The trade to acquire Luis Arraez from the Minnesota Twins has worked out quite well for the Miami Marlins.
Arraez is hitting near the .400 mark and has the chance to accomplish something that hasn’t been done since the days of Ted Williams.
In last night’s All-Star Game, Arraez had a game to remember.
The Marlins star had just two at-bats and only saw two total pitches.
However, he picked up singles on both of them, the second of which tied the game at one run apiece.
On Twitter, the Marlins posted some highlights from Arraez’s night in Seattle with the National League All-Stars.

Arraez certainly had a game to remember.
The Marlins star stayed true to form as he picked up two singles on just two pitches.
Arraez has mainly been a singles hitter throughout his career.
He has hit just three home runs this season, yet he owns an average of .383.
The star second baseman also has driven in a total of 42 runs and is reaching base at a .434 clip.
He even has an OPS of .905.
The National League ended up winning by a final score of 3-2 over the American League, with a two-run homer in the eighth inning from Colorado Rockies catcher Elias Diaz proving to be the difference in the game.
But Arraez was the one who opened the scoring for the Senior Circuit on Tuesday night and is certainly worthy of praise for his performance.NEXT: MLB Insider Shares An Important Marlins Fact For MLB Fans
