Bour, who played 48 games with the Hawks in 2009, is hitting .285 with 18 home runs and 53 RBIs this season. He has yet to make an all-star game since his MLB debut in 2014.
The rest of the National League’s final five include Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon, Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner and Rockies first baseman Mark Reynolds.
Bryant and Bour are both trying to join Pirates utilityman Josh Harrison, who made his second all-star team as a manager’s selection. The 2008 Boise Hawk is hitting .288 with nine home runs, 27 RBIs and 10 stolen bases.
