Astros starting pitcher Dallas Keuchel named to AL All-Star team
Astros starting pitcher Dallas Keuchel will join second baseman Jose Altuve and manager A.J. Hinch at the 2015 All-Star Game in Cincinnati.
Keuchel was selected to the American League All-Star team on Monday. He is 10-3 with a 2.03 ERA and 102 strikeouts on the season. Keuchel leads the American League in ERA and tied for the league lead in wins.
This is Keuchel's first All-Star selection. The starting pitchers for the game have not yet been announced, but Keuchel's name is being bandied about as the potential AL starter.
Hinch was named to the AL's coaching staff.
Altuve passed Kansas City's Omar Infante in the final days of voting, leaving four Royals as starters for the All-Star Game.
AL champion Kansas City will be represented in the starting lineup by outfielders Lorenzo Cain and Alex Gordon, catcher Salvador Perez and shortstop Alcides Escobar. Four players ties the AL record for fan-elected starters, achieved nine times previously.
Eight Royals were on track to start in vote totals announced June 15, but first baseman Eric Hosmer, third baseman Mike Moustakas and designated hitter Kendrys Morales also were overtaken.
The All-Star Game is Tuesday, July 14.
