Michael Cuddyer is one of seven former Twins who were named to the All-Star Game on Saturday. The other six:
Jesse Crain, Chicago White Sox: His streak of 31 games without allowing an earned run finally ended last week, but he still owns a 0.74 ERA. But Crain was placed on the disabled list Wednesday, and ex-teammate Glen Perkins will replace him.
Carlos Gomez, Milwaukee: The center fielder is living up to his multiyear contract with 13 homers entering Saturday, along with an NL-leading nine triples, while hitting .319.
Joe Nathan, Texas: He had saved 28 games in 29 opportunities, and since June 1 had struck out 19 batters in 16 innings. Hitters were batting .157 against him.
David Ortiz, Boston: Big Papi had a .615 slugging percentage, trailing only Chris Davis and Miguel Cabrera in the AL, to go with 17 homers and 61 RBI.
J.J. Hardy, Baltimore: He passed Elvis Andrus late to win the vote as the starter at shortstop.
Torii Hunter, Detroit: Named to his fifth All-Star team and first since 2010.
