Three Yankees make All-Star team


Despite a down season, the Yankees are sending three players to San Diego to participate in the 2016 All-Star game.

Pitchers Andrew Miller and Dellin Betances along with outfielder Carlos Beltran are the three representatives New York will send. All three were voted in by the players and managers.

Miller’s numbers speak for themselves and seemed like the one Yankees that was definitely a lock. He owns a 1.47 ERA with 66 strikeouts in 36.2 innings. His 66 strikeouts are compared to only five walks on the year. Miller also has seven saves, those of course coming before Aroldis Chapman came back from suspension.

Betances is also having a very good season, despite not having the kind of numbers Yankee fans are used too. The Yankee right-hander leads all major league relievers in Wins Above Replacement. Betances has a 2.63 ERA with 74 strikeouts in 41.0 innings. This is his third straight All-Star selection.

At 39-years-old Beltran will make his ninth All-Star appearances. He is having a tremendous bounce back year. The right fielder is batting .296/.337/.567 with 19 home runs and 53 RBIs entering play Tuesday.

The Yankees will be well represented in San Diego. You can catch the three Bombers next Tuesday at 7:30 on FOX.
