Stephen Strasburg Didn’t Make The MLB All-Star Game!

Rookie sensation Stephen Strasburg will have to wait at least another season before he gets the nod. Strasburg’s 100 mph fastball has captivated fans around baseball since the Washington Nationals called the right-hander up June 8, but NL manager Charlie Manuel would like to see the 21-year-old settle into his role as an ace before making the Midsummer Classic.

“He got quite a bit of consideration,” Philadelphia’s Manuel told TBS during the selection show. “He is going be an All-Star for a long time. What does he have, five starts? I just felt there are other guys who have started 18 to 20 games. I just felt, ‘leave him alone and let him get used to the major league level.’ “
