Washington Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann earns All-Star status

Washington Nationals starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann was named to the National League All-Star team Sunday. He was voted to the team as a result of the players’ ballot. Second baseman Anthony Rendon was named one of the “final five” to be voted on by the fans.

Zimmermann will make his second All-Star game appearance, having gone to the game in 2013.

Zimmermann, 28, is 6-4 with a 2.95 ERA and 1.186 WHIP this season. He has struck out 7.9 per nine innings against 1.6 walks per nine and has allowed just six home runs in 103 2/3 innings.

Rendon, 24, is hitting .286/.343/.489 with 12 homers and 50 RBIs in 82 games. The others on the final vote ballot are Anthony Rizzo (CHC), Justin Morneau (COL), Casey McGehee (MIA) and Justin Upton (ATL).
