Jeff Samardzija will be inactive for the All-Star Game in Minneapolis.

The Shark shined in his debut with his new club Sunday and his peers felt he shined enough in his time with the Cubs that they had voted him onto the NL All-Star team. The good news for Samardzija is that he can go to the game, (and enjoy all the activities that the All-Star players will be involved in), but he will not be able to play now that he is a member of an American League team. Starlin Castro has been voted in to replace for Cubs former ace.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
