25-year old righty starting pitcher Chris Tillman has been added to the All-Star Team to replace Justin Verlander, who pitched yesterday for the Tigers.  Tillman has pitched in 19 games (all starts) for the Orioles so far this year and he is 11-3 with a 3.95 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP.  Tillman has given up 110 hits and 41 walks while whiffing 89 batters in his first 111 2/3 innings, which are pretty solid numbers.  Tillman has really come around his last two years and he deserves this honor.  In his last two years, Tillman has pitched in 34 games (all starts) in which he is 20-6 with a 3.51 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP.

27-year old lefty swinging 1B Chris Davis, 30-year old righty swinging SS J.J. Hardy and 27-year old righty swinging CF Adam Jones have been elected by the fans to start for the American League in the All-Star Game.  21-year old righty swinging 3B Manny Machado was picked as a reserve by A.L. Manager Jim Leyland.  Davis is having an amazing year for the Orioles in 2013.  He has played in 88 games for the Orioles so far this year and he is 102 of 319 (.320 avg, 1.106 OPS) with 63 runs scored, 33 homers and 85 RBIs.  He has also walked 36 times while whiffing 99 times so far this year, so his batting average might be hard to maintain in the second half of the 2013 season.  Hardy has played in 89 games for the Orioles so far this year and he is 85 of 338 (.251 avg, .722 OPS) with 33 runs scored, 15 homers, 46 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  He has slowed down lately at the plate for the O’s.  Jones has been playing his usual Gold Glove caliber defense in CF and he’s also raking at the plate.  Jones has played in 89 games for the Orioles so far this year and he is 107 of 370 (.289 avg, .791 OPS) with 59 runs scored, 16 homers, 61 RBIs and 9 stolen bases.  Jones hasn’t been very picky at the plate so far this year as he has only walked 9 times so far this year while whiffing 72 times.  Machado has played in 89 games for the O’s so far this year and he is 119 of 382 (.312 avg, .812 OPS) with 53 runs scored, 6 homers, 42 RBIs and 6 stolen bases.  Machado also has a major league leading 39 doubles right now.

This will be Jones’ second All-Star Game. 26-year old switch-hitting catcher Matt Wieters has made it to his second All-Star Game as a reserve. He has played in 72 games for the O’s so far this year and he is 64 of 259 (.247 avg, .770 OPS) with 34 runs scored, 11 homers, 38 RBIs and 1 stolen base.
