32-year old lefty starting pitcher Cole Hamels of the Texas Rangers has been named to the All Star Team, for the 4th time in his career. He has pitched in 18 games (all starts) for the Rangers so far this year and he is 9-2 with a 3.21 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP. Hamels has given up 102 hits and 47 walks while whiffing 109 batters in his first 112 innings for the Rangers. Hamels has now pitched in 325 games (324 starts) in his first 11 years in the show and he is 130-93 with a 3.31 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP. The Rangers need Hamels to keep up the good work in the second half, as their starting rotation has been be-set by a lot of injuries as of late.
