The National League is overloaded with pitchers.

And who in the name of old Jack Murphy Stadium is going to represent the San Diego Padres?

Three – or four – Red Sox are selected for all-star game

NEW YORK - David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox will be the starting designated hitter for the American League for the All-Star game that will be played July 16 at Citi Field in New York.

Ortiz was one of the three Red Sox players named to the game, and a fourth still has a chance.

Second baseman Dustin Pedroia will head to the game as a reserve and pitcher Clay Buchholz also was named to the team, although he won't play because he's on the disabled list.

Futures is bright for U.S.

NEW YORK - Matt Davidson of the Arizona Diamondbacks hit a two-run homer and the United States beat the World team 4-2 on Sunday in the All-Star Futures Game, baseball's annual showcase for top minor league prospects.

The opening event for three days of All-Star festivities at Citi Field, the Futures Game certainly had a New York Mets flavor in their home ballpark. Two of the team's touted pitching prospects, Noah Syndergaard and Rafael Montero, started on the mound, and each worked a scoreless inning.

MLB ALL-STAR GAME: Youth brings flash to the diamond at All-Star game
By 
Mike Fitzpatrick

NEW YORK — Flip on any highlight show and you're almost sure to see them, with those peach-fuzz faces and boyish features beneath their big league caps.

Mike Trout makes a diving catch on the warning track.

Manny Machado whacks another double into the corner at Camden Yards.

Bryce Harper belts a tape-measure home run or barrels into a catcher ... or an outfield fence ... or whatever stands in his way.

Home Run Derby: Yoenis Cespedes worthy of a starring role
Although not selected for the game, the Oakland outfielder outslugs Bryce Harper.

NEW YORK - Yoenis Cespedes won baseball's Home Run Derby on Monday night, becoming the first player left out of the All-Star game to take home the crown.

The Oakland Athletics' slugger beat Bryce Harper 9-8 in the final round at reconfigured Citi Field, hitting the decisive drive with five swings to spare.

Commentary: Only one memory of All-Star game, but it will last
The entire All-Star game was set up as a tribute to Mariano Rivera, and what a tribute it was.
By LARRY STONE

NEW YORK - It was an All-Star game devoid of memorable plays, but one that will resonate for one indelible moment.

The whole game, really, was filler until Mariano Rivera's appearance. All else was a warm-up.

"We were all playing for that," Oakland reliever Grant Balfour said. "That's all we were talking about in the bullpen: We're playing for one guy today, really. I know it's a team game but we all wanted to see this guy get in the game and go out on a high."
