Loaiza, Everett Named to AL All-Star Team


Posted Jul 6, 2003


(SN Report #558) - White Sox ACE Esteban Loaiza and recently acquired outfielder Carl Everett were named to the American League all-star team on Sunday. The rosters were set with Everett being one of 10 reserves and Loaiza being one of six starters.

The 31-year-old Loaiza, who was signed to a minor league deal this past off-season, has emerged as one of baseball's best starters, posting a 11-4 record and 2.28 ERA. He's struck out 99 and walked 31 in 122 1/3 innings.

Everett, 32, had a huge April and May before a long June slump. Despite that, his .272 average, 18 homers and 52 RBIs is enough for him to get selected. Everett was acquired from the Rangers on Tuesday for two or three minor leaguers that will be named later.

Joining Everett and Loaiza may be Frank Thomas, who is one of five candidates on the AL etopps final vote list, which picks the 32nd player via internet voting.
