Orioles' Jason Hammel places third in AL All-Star Game final vote

The Baltimore Sun

Orioles right-hander Jason Hammel finished third in the AL All-Star Game final vote fan balloting, which concluded Thursday afternoon.

As expected, Rangers rookie right-hander Yu Darvish won the vote. White Sox right-hander Jake Peavy placed second.

Hammel, who is 8-4 with a 3.43 ERA in 16 starts with 97 strikeouts and 86 hits in 99 2/3 innings this season, placed ahead of Royals closer Jonathan Broxton and Angels reliever Ernesto Frieri.

He won't be joining Orioles all-star selections outfielder Adam Jones, catcher Matt Wieters and right-handed closer Jim Johnson for Tuesday's game at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City.

Had Hammel won, the Orioles would have placed four players in the All-Star Game since 2005, when Brian Roberts, Miguel Tejada, B.J. Ryan and Melvin Mora made the team.
