As has been expected for about a week now, Chicago Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro was selected at the team’s (sole) representative in the All-Star game.

Unless you count manager Mike Quade, who will be one of the NL coaches.

Castro, 21, is a first-time All-Star, and currently sports a .309/.340/.427 line.┬áHe’s second in the NL in hits with 108, but leads the NL in errors at 16.

The only other Cub who merited serious consideration was reliever Sean Marshall, a set-up man, who has a 2.11 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in 38.1 innings. He’s struck out 39.
