26-year old righty starting pitcher Danny Salazar of the Cleveland Indians has been selected to the All Star Team for the first time in his career, but he won’t pitch in the game due to a sore right elbow.  Salazar has pitched in 17 games (all starts) for the Indians so far this year and he is 10-3 with a 2.75 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP.  He has given up 77 hits and 46 walks while whiffing 118 batters in his first 104 2/3 innings this year for the Tribe.  Salazar has now pitched in 77 games (all starts) for the Indians in his first four years with the team and he is 32-24 with a 3.45 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP.  The Indians hope that this is the first of many All-Star Teams that Salazar will be selected to be on in his career.

22-year old switch-hitting SS Francisco Lindor of the Cleveland Indians has been named to the All Star Team for the first time of his career.  He has played in 86 games for the Indians so far this year and he is 101 of 333 (.303 avg, .816 OPS) with 59 runs scored, 10 homers, 44 RBIs and 13 stolen bases.  Lindor has now played in 185 games in his first two years with the Tribe and he is 223 of 723 (.308 avg, .827 OPS) with 109 runs scored, 22 homers, 95 RBIs and 25 stolen bases.  Lindor can do it all on the field, as he has power, speed and he is an excellent defensive player.  I think 2016 will be the first of many All-Star Games that Lindor will play in!
