Jose Altuve, pitcher Will Harris selected to AL All-Star Game roster
The Houston Astros are sending two representatives to the 2016 MLB All-Star Game.
Jose Altuve and pitcher Will Harris will make the trip to San Diego for the Midsummer Classic on July 12. Altuve was voted in by baseball fans as the starting second baseman for the American League. Harris was named as a reserve by AL manager Ned Yost of the World Series champion Kansas City Royals.
This will be Altuve's fourth All-Star Game appearance (2012, 2014-16). He recently won the AL Player of the Month for June.
Harris will make his All-Star Game debut.
Altuve is leading MLB in batting with a .353 average and hits with 115. He's tied for second in the AL with 22 stolen bases.
Harris is 0-1 with 8 saves and 15 holds in 36.2 innings this season. He's given up only 3 runs, and has struck out 36 batters while walking only 6.
Royals catcher Salvador Perez was the leading vote-getter for the AL.
New York Mets skipper Terry Collins will manage the NL squad.
The AL has won the last three All-Star games.
