2011 MLB All-Star Rosters: Tyler Clippard Makes It For Washington Nationals

The 2011 MLB All-Star Game rosters have just been announced, and the Washington Nationals' representative is reliever Tyler Clippard. Clippard makes the team on account of his excellent season out of the Nationals' bullpen, and it's a much-deserving honor for him.

The Nationals have been able to rely on Clippard to hold leads all season. He currently sports a 1-0 record and a 1.96 ERA in 37 appearances and 46 innings. He also has a spectacular 0.87 WHIP, and has struck out 57 hitters and walked just 15. He had an excellent season in 2010, and has followed it up with an even better season in 2011.

The disappointment, though, is that other Nationals did not make the team. Second baseman Danny Espinosa was left out despite bashing 15 home runs and 48 RBI with good defense. Starter Jordan Zimmermann didn't make it despite being fifth in the NL in ERA. Closer Drew Storen didn't make it despite posting 20 saves, and Michael Morse and Ryan Zimmerman also were shut out.
