Nelson Cruz Named as Lone Minnesota Twins Player to All Star Game
Major League Baseball released the 2021 All Star Game rosters today, naming designated hitter Nelson Cruze as the lone Minnesota Twins team member to make the All Star roster.
Cruz will be looking for his first hit as an All Star after going 0 for 7 in his first six games. He'll also be repressing his fourth team as an All Star after appearing as a Texas Ranger, Baltimore Oriole, and Seattle Mariner.
Byron Buxton, Jose Berrios and Taylor Rogers were all looked at as possible 2021 All Stars, but the team's poor performance likely dashed those hopes. Buxton finished fourth in American League outfielder voting (the top three make the roster) behind the Los Angeles Angels' MikeTrout, New York Yankees' Aaron Judge, and Toronto Blue Jays' Teoscar Hernández.
The 2021 All-Star Game will be played on Tuesday, July 13, at Coors Field in Denver, released on FOX.
