The 2019 MLB All Star team includes Joey Gallo and Mike Minor, who were named to the American League squad today, joining teammate Hunter Pence, who was named the starting DH, as the Texas Rangers representatives.

Gallo has had a breakout 2019 campaign, slashing .286/.426/.683 and being among the A.L. leaders in WAR despite missing almost a month with a strained oblique. Minor is the runaway leader among A.L. pitchers in bWAR, and has a league leading 2.40 ERA on the season.

With Three representatives, this is the Rangers largest All Star contingent since 2013.
