Yankees send five players to 2017 All-Star Game

05 Julio 2017

Luis Severino is coming off his most dominant performance of the season and will get a chance to avenge his worst when he takes the mound for the New York Yankees on Sunday in the rubber match of a three-game series at the Houston Astros.

Judge, 25, became just the third Yankees rookie after Joe DiMaggio in 1936 and Hideki Matsui in 2003 to be elected to start in an All-Star Game, and the youngest player to lead the AL in votes since Ken Griffey Jr.in 1994, at age 24. McCullers was not charged with the loss, so he is still undefeated at home this season. New York was led by Didi Gregorius, who had two hits and drove in four runs.

Correa had a career-high-tying four hits, Gurriel chipped in with his second consecutive three-hit game and a weary bullpen worked wonders in the Astros' 8-1 victory over the New York Yankees on Sunday at Minute Maid Park. Judge made the proper adjustments during the offseason, barely won the starting job out of the spring and has gone on an absolute tear ever since, quickly becoming one of the most exciting power hitters in the sport, his at-bats becoming must-see TV, the exit velocities on his homers simply astounding.

Outfielder Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels, catcher Salvador Perez of the Kansas City Royals and Astros second baseman Jose Altuve are the other A.L. starters.

Four of the top six home-run months have occurred in 2017 or last year.

Rosters were cut from 34 per league to 32 under the new labor deal, and online voting determines the last spot on each roster. "So it's going to be cool to be around them and kind of pick their brain a little bit and like I said just try to be in the moment and enjoy it all".

In his first start since returning from the DL, McCullers surrendered one run in five innings versus the Mariners.

"The stadium looked completely different (from the mound)".

The Bombers knew they had something.

The Yankees and Washington are the only big league teams this year that have not been shut out.

"You've got the perfect word for it, surreal", Judge said. He allowed one run in five innings. He allowed two runs over six innings to win at the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday after a stretch in which he went 0-6 in eight starts. Under baseball's new labor contract, the Series now starts in the ballpark of the pennant winner with the better record.

Frazier's career will also be measured against current Indians centerfielder Bradley Zimmer. With Torres out, the prospect hype machine will hone in on the redhead with what Cashman called "legendary" bat speed.
