He did have 47 RBI's that year and batted .248...he would fit in on the current team very nicely

WWII and was the rule one player from every team in effect then? That would be a logical explanation.

I know he had a better arm than Browns outfielder Pete Gray. But I also know the point was probably moot. Mike Tresh didn't play in the 1945 All-Star Game because there wasn't one.

Really? Baseball-reference has him listed as an All-Star for the 1945 season:
