The Seattle Mariners will send two starting pitchers to the All-Star Game – Felix Hernandez and Hisashi Iwakuma.

Iwakuma has the lowest ERA in the American League at 2.60. Hernandez is right behind him at 2.69.

A lot of Mariners fans were hoping Raul Ibanez get in, but he was a dark horse. Ibanez has hit 21 home runs this season, fourth-most in Major League history for a 41-year-old.

With the exception of Ichiro Suzuki, the Mariners have not sent a position player to the All-Star Game since Jose Lopez in 2006.
