Former Senators in the MLB All-Star Game

Sunday afternoon the Major League All-Star teams were announced and neither Drew Storen or Danny Espinosa were selected to make their first All-Star appearance in this year’s game. So if they’re not added to the roster between now and July 12th, the number of former Harrisburg Senators named to the midsummer classic still stands at 17 (since 2011 All-Stars Cliff Lee and Brandon Phillips are repeat selections). Most names on the list are expected, but some are quite frankly a surprise (Carlos Perez?!?).

Vladimir Guerrero (9) – 1999-2002, 2004-07, 2010
Moises Alou (6) – 1994, 1997-98, 2001, 2004-05
Cliff Lee (3) – 2008, 2010-11
Jose Vidro (3) – 2000, 2002-03

Brandon Phillips (2) – 2010-11
Rick Reed (2) – 1998, 2001

Ugueth Urbina (2) – 1998, 2002
Milton Bradley (1) – 2008
Cliff Floyd (1) – 2001
Carlos Garcia (1) – 1994
Mark Grudzielanek (1) – 1996

Carlos Perez (1) – 1995
Javier Vazquez (1) – 2004
Jake Westbrook (1) – 2004
Rondell White (1) – 2003

Chris Young (1) – 2007
Ryan Zimmerman (1) – 2009

As far as performance in the game goes, the former Senators have been less than stellar. Collectively, the group is hitting .227 while Vladimir Guerrero, Moises Alou, and Carlos Garcia are the only players to get hits and Guerrero is the only one to hit a home run. Vlad also had success in the 2007 Home Run Derby when he topped Alex Rios to take home the title.

As far as the guys on the mound, no pitcher has recorded a win or save but Ugueth Urbina and Chris Young were both tagged with a loss. One of the more peculiar anomalies belongs to Rick Reed as he was selected in two separate seasons and yet didn’t make an appearance in either game.
