Felix, Iwakuma to represent M’s in All-Star Game

By 710Sports.com staff

The Seattle Mariners have two of the top starting pitchers in the MLB this season, and they’ll both be able to showcase their talents at the All-Star Game at the New York Mets’ Citi Field July 16.

Mariners ace Felix Hernandez was named to his fourth American League All-Star team on Saturday, and fellow right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma was selected as an All-Star for the first time.

Hernandez and Iwakuma have both hovered near the top of the leaderboard in several pitching categories this season. Hernandez (8-4) ranks fifth in the Majors in strikeouts (130), 10th in ERA (2.69), and 21st in WHIP (1.11). Iwakuma (7-4) is eighth in ERA (2.60), ninth in batting average-against (.204), and is the MLB leader with a 0.88 WHIP.

Hernandez was the Mariners’ lone All-Star last season. The franchise hasn’t had a position player named to the team since Ichiro Suzuki in 2010.
