27-year old closer Chris Perez and 26-year old switch-hitting SS Asdrubal Cabrera have both been selected to their 2nd All-Star teams.  Perez has pitched in 32 games (0 starts) for the Indians so far this year and he is 0-1 with 23 saves, a 2.67 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP.  He has only given up 24 hits and walked 7 batters in his first 30 1/3 innings for the Tribe so far this year while whiffing 32 batters, and those are impressive numbers.  Asdrubal Cabrera has played in 70 games for the Indians so far this year and he is 83 for 281 (.295 avg, .862 OPS) with 41 runs scored, 11 homers, 40 RBIs and 2 stolen bases.  He should be starting as he is having a better season than Derek Jeter is.
