Adam Wainwright has been named starting pitcher for the National League All-Star team.
Personally, I would of picked Clayton Kershaw but when you're manager makes the decisions, there really is no fighting it. It isn't like Wainwright isn't deserving with his 1.83 ERA, 0.91 WHIP, and 115/27 K/BB ratio in 138 innings this season but just Kershaw has been outstanding and with a no-hitter under his belt. Felix Hernandez has been named the American League starter. ANALYST: Drew Phelps
Tigers are in discussions with Jordan Zimmermann.
There is nothing definite to this point, but reports have surfaced that Jordan Zimmermann is in "serious" discussions with the Tigers. Zimmermann would form a nice one-two punch with Justin Verlander atop the rotation in Detroit. Zimmermann was 13-10 in 2015 with a 3.66 ERA and 164 strikeouts in 201 2/3 innings pitched.
