Six Yankees on AL All-Star team

The Yankees will be represented in force for the 82nd Major League Baseball All-Star Game on July 12, boasting six players selected to the American League roster.

Second baseman Robinson Cano, shortstop Derek Jeter, third baseman Alex Rodriguez and outfielder Curtis Granderson will bring their road gray uniforms to Arizona’s Chase Field, elected to the AL’s starting lineup via fan voting.

In addition, catcher Russell Martin and closer Mariano Rivera have been named as AL All-Stars, with Martin as a reserve.

Mark Teixeira may also be in attendance for the Midsummer Classic, as David Ortiz of the Red Sox selected Teixeira as a potential participant for the State Farm Home Run Derby.

CC Sabathia and Dave Robertson missed the cut, though Rangers manager Ron Washington said that Sabathia is the next pitcher on his depth chart, should someone need to be scratched.

The Yankees do not have a Final Vote participant this year.

How does Teixera not make the All Star team? Also, for the NL, change Polanco to 3B and Reyes to SS, you mixed them up.
