Delabar makes Allstar team

Despite being 3 games under .500 and in dead last in the AL East, the Blue Jays will send 4 players to New York’s Citi Field for the 2013 allstar game next week.  Steve Delabar, 29, claimed the final vote roster spot and will join teammates Brett Cecil, Jose Bautista, and Edwin Encarnacion in the AL team clubhouse.  This will be Delabar’s first allstar appearance.

For AL relievers this season, Delabar ranks 3rd in strikeouts with 57 and 5th in ERA, posting a stingy 1.74.  Delabar picked up his first career save in Wednesday in Toronto’s only win in its series vs. the Indians.

Hard to believe someone with his arm has only 1 career save and it took until this year to get it.  Happy to see another Blue Jay in the allstar game, but 4 players from a team with a losing record?  Really?
