2010 MLB All-Star Game: Ubaldo Jimenez, David Price Selected As Starting Pitchers

The Rockies' Ubaldo Jimenez and the Rays' David Price have been named the starters for the National League and American League teams, respectively, for Tuesday nights MLB All-Star Game.

The selection of the two first-time All-Stars is not terribly surprising, though that's not to say either choice was easy for managers Charlie Manuel and Joe Giradi.

Indeed, Manuel said that picking Jimenez over the Marlins' Josh Johnson (9-3, 1.70 ERA, 245 ERA+, 9.1 K/9)  was a "tough pick," but it is Jimenez with the tough-to-look-past 15-1 record, the most wins for a pitcher at the break since David Wells' 15 in the 2000 season. And Jimenez's other numbers -- 2.20 ERA, 204 ERA+, 8 K/9 -- are not exactly terrible, either.

Over on the A.L. side, Price was the likely candidate, since he leads the league with a 2.42 ERA and is tied with 12 wins (along with CC Sabathia), numbers that are made impressive when you figured he pitches in the same division as the Yankees and Red Sox. If there was anyone that Price did beat out, it was probably Boston's Jon Lester, and his 11-3 mark and 2.78 ERA.
