    Yankees OF Brett Gardner selected to 2015 All-Star game

    Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner has been selected to the 2015 All-Star game, reports the New York Daily News. It is his first All-Star selection. Gardner was chosen as an injury replacement for Alex Gordon, who was recently placed on the disabled list. Gardner is hitting .298 with nine home runs and 39 RBI in 78 games. "Tough decision," Royals and American League All-Star manager Ned Yost said, per MLB.com. "I sat there all morning trying to figure it out. The choice really boiled down between, for me, [Michael] Brantley, [Yoenis] Cespedes and Brett Gardner. Their numbers are comparable. Cespedes has more home runs. Gardner is more of a speed guy. But you look at the stats over the last six weeks or so, Gardner had an OPS of over 1.000 in June and he's, since May 1, .901. "Cespedes is right about .806, so you kind of look at the combination of [Gardner's] speed, the on-base percentage and the ability to play the outfield to his degree. I'm trying to put this team together, trying to put together the best team we can to win this baseball game, and we just went with him."
