Kansas City Royals rookie reliever Aaron Crow will be the team’s lone representative, at least for now, at the 2011 MLB All-Star Game July 12 in Arizona.
Crow, a 6-foot-2 righthander, is 2-1 with a 1.36 ERA in 39.2 innings this season. He has 39 strikeouts on the season.
While Crow is already on the roster, it is possible the Royals could get another selection on the team as outfielder Alex Gordon is one of the five players that fans can vote for on American League’s 34th man ballot. He’ll compete against Chicago White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko, Baltimore Orioles oufielder Adam Jones, Detroit Tigers catcher/designated hitter Victor Martinez and Tampa Bay Rays second baseman Ben Zobrist. Konerko should be the pick out of the group, but it’s a fan vote so it’s anybody’s guess.
Gordon is hitting .301 with 10 home runs, 46 RBI and 47 runs scored this season.
