Three Rockies Make MLB All-Star Team

Tulo, Cargo voted starters

DENVER - Colorado Rockies Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonazlez were voted in by fans as starters for the MLB All-Star Game.

Michael Cuddyer will be joining his Colorado teammates as a reserve player.

Major League Baseball announced the players for the 84th All-Star Game, to be played on July 16 at Citi Field in New York.

Tulowitzki was voted to his third All-Star Game despite currently being on the disabled list with a broken rib. Tulowitzki garnered 5,404,860 votes and is the fourth different consecutive starting shortstop for the National League.

It is the second consecutive All-Star Game for Gonzalez. He finished with the second-most fan votes among National League outfielders with 4,214,904. The 27-year-old leads the N.L. with 23 home runs, 65 runs scored, 199 total bases and 50 extra-base hits. Gonzalez is the  third Rockies outfielder to earn a fan election, joining Dante Bichette (1996) and Larry Walker (1997-99).

Tulo and Cargo become the first pair of Rockies teammates voted to the All-Star Game.

Cuddyer is making his first All-Star Game and did it largely on the strength of his recently-snapped 27-game hitting streak. The hitting streak was the longest ever by a Colorado Rockies player.

Cuddyer is batting .342 with 15 home runs and 52 RBI.
