Paul Konerko, Adam Dunn and Chris Sale were named to the American League All-Star team. Neither of the position players are starters and it is not yet known if Sale will be given the nod as the starting pitcher. Jake Peavy could still make the team for the final spot fan vote. A.J. Pierzynski was also left off the roster.
Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro and outfielder Bryan LaHair were both named to the National League All-Star team. Both players were reserved with Castro making it for a second straight season, while LaHair is making his first appearance. The All Star Game is July 10th in Kansas City.
