As far as I'm concerned, if the Twins have just one player who is worthy of selection to the All-Star game, it's Baker. It's very feasible that Minnesota has just the one required representative. Does anyone else deserve it more than him? Not as far as I'm concerned.


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2011 - Tim Stauffer 2-4 14 14 0 0 0 0 85.0 87 33 31 5 23 68 3.28 1.29

Stauffer just turned 29, and the right-hander has spent parts of six seasons with the Padres. He's been largely effective this season, as his peripherals show. He has a propensity for inducing ground balls (a lot of them), he has a good fastball in the lower 90s, a decent slider, a hittable curve, and a changeup he'll offer more to left-handed pitchers but is a solid contribution nevertheless.

He's an unknown quantity to the Twins, and is having a good season. Our offense could be in for a battle.
