Porcello is 11-5 with a 3.53 ERA this year, helping the Tigers remain in first place most of the season despite Justin Verlander's struggles and Anibal Sanchez's brief injury problems. Porcello is now part of the online vote for the final spot on the American League All-Star team.
The candidates for the final spot in the AL are all pitchers: Porcello, Dallas Keuchel of Houston, Corey Kluber of Cleveland, Garrett Richards of the Los Angeles Angels and Chris Sale of the Chicago White Sox.
