Adam Jones. The Orioles' center fielder has had a breakout season in 2012, and performed well enough to earn a six-year, $85.5 million extension in May.
Jones was an All-Star in 2009, but did not have the same type of numbers that he has this year.
Going into the weekend, Jones led the O's in batting average (.295), home runs (19), RBIs (41) and runs scored (49).
Adam Jones may not be voted in, as he was fifth in outfield voting at the last update, but should be selected as a reserve.
Jim Johnson. The Orioles' closer has had a career year in 2012, converting 22 of his 23 save opportunities with a 1.07 ERA entering the weekend.
Prior to this season, Johnson had just 21 saves, and had served primarily as the team's set-up man in recent years. Johnson has provided stability to a position where the Orioles have had failed experiments such as Kevin Gregg and Michael Gonzalez in recent years.
