Felipe Vazquez Named to All-Star Game

For the second year in a row, the Pittsburgh Pirates have just one representative on the National League All-Star squad. Closer Felipe Vazquez was named to the team on Sunday night. The game will be held July 17th in Washington DC this year.

Vazquez has a 3.38 ERA and 18 saves in 38 appearances this season. In 37.1 innings, he has 51 strikeouts and a 1.31 WHIP. This will be his first All-Star game appearance.

No Pirates were among the group of five players in the Final Vote for the last spot on each roster. Josh Harrison was the only player from the Pirates to make the ASG last year.
