Good morning.

Evan Grant notes that Mike Minor and Joey Gallo will join DH starter Hunter Pence next week in Cleveland for the Midsummer Classic.

Joey Johnston at the Star-Telegram writes that the Rangers will have three All-Stars for the first time since Nelson Cruz, Joe Nathan, and Yu Darvish were invited to the 2013 squad.

Dawn Klemish writes for MLB dot com about the coronation of the beginning of the Joey Gallo era and the rise of Mike Minor as an elite arm.

Now that Minor has completed his mission to become an All-Star, Grant writes that he doesn’t even know if he wants to actually pitch in the game because he wants to be ready for the Astros immediately after the break.

Klemish has the latest on the injuries around the club with Rougned Odor being a late scratch yesterday in Tampa but looking likely to avoid an IL trip.

Jamey Newberg goes about ranking the best individual tools among Rangers minor leaguers.

And, lastly, Joey Gallo still hasn’t been asked to participate in the Home Run Derby so let’s just watch him hit baseballs where none of the chumps who have been invited can hit them.

Have a nice day!
