Jordan Zimmermann Named To National League All-Star Team



    Nationals pitcher Jordan Zimmermann has been named to the National League All-Star team for the second straight season.

    The 28-year-old is 6-4 with a 2.79 ERA in 18 starts so far this season. He was the only National named to the team despite worthy candidates like first baseman Adam LaRoche, infielder Anthony Rendon and closer Rafael Soriano. 

    Rendon, however, will have an opportunity to make the team as part of the "Final Vote" contest. Voting is open until 4 p.m. ET on Thursday

    Meanwhile, the Orioles have a league-high three starters on the American League side: Nelson Cruz, Adam Jones and Matt Wieters (who is out for the season following Tommy John surgery). 

    This season's All-Star Game takes place on July 15 from Target Field in Minneapolis.
