So we'll have 4 Blue Jays at the All-Star game. You'd almost imagine we weren't a last place team, still looking up at .500.
Steve Delabar got 9.6 million votes.
This completes the teacher to All-Star transformation that Delabar has undergone. This season Delabar has out 12.4 strikeouts per 9 innings. He's really picked it up in the last month, having 19.6 strikeouts per 9 in that time. He's also only allowed 6.3 hits/9 this season. We won't mention the 4.8 walk/9.
Batters are just hitting .196/.305/.264 this season. He has 4 holds and 1 save, from yesterday, getting the save on one pitch.
Congratulations Steve, it is a well deserved honor.
