The Pirates have multiple players selected to the MLB All-Star game for the second consecutive season. 

Just ten starts into his career, Paul Skenes was named an All-Star pitcher. Paul has 78 strikeouts this season and only walked 12 batters through his 59.1 innings of work. He has been credited 5 wins and has zero losses on the season.

The rookie pitcher becomes the first player in MLB history to be selected number one overall in the MLB draft and be an All-Star the next season.

Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Bryan Reynolds was also named to the All-Star reserves this season. Reynolds caught fire in the month of June hitting 6 of his 16 home runs this season in that span. He leads the team in home runs and has batted in 54 runs so far this season. Reynolds also had a hit streak of 25 games straight earlier this year and continues to have a career year. It's his second straight All-Star selection. 

The game will take place on July 16th at Arlington's Globe Life Field.
