Baltimore Orioles send four players to the All-Star Game

The Baltimore Orioles will be sending four players to the All-Star Game, the league announced Monday.

Darren O'Day was somewhat a surprise selection, making his first Midsummer Classic with a 5-0 record and a 1.14 ERA in 31 2/3 innings pitched.

Adam Jones is in the midst of another stellar season, posting a .286 average with 10 home runs and 58 RBI. This will mark his fourth consecutive and fifth overall selection.

Orioles closer Zach Britton has been one of the games elite closers since transitioning as a starter and will head to Cincinnati for his first All-Star Game. He is 21 for 22 in save opportunities, striking out 10.6 hitters per nine innings.

Finally, Manny Machado rounds out the list with his second selection. He has already hit a career-high 18 home runs, stolen a career-high 13 bases and walked a career-high 30 times. To be redundant, he's having a career year and it's only halfway through.
