Rizzo took it all in at his first All-Star Game

MINNEAPOLIS – Anthony Rizzo spent two days in Minneapolis, and all he got to show for it was a lousy strikeout. Similar story for his teammate Starlin Castro.

Anthony Rizzo joins Starlin Castro on NL All-Star team

CINCINNATI — When Anthony Rizzo nabbed the National League’s final All-Star spot Thursday to join teammate Starlin Castro on the team, it underscored the Cubs’ highest priority at the major-league level entering 2014: bounce-back seasons for the two 24-year-olds with seven-year contracts.

Brian Kersey/Starlin Castro should be available next offseason, if not sooner, with the Cubs now loaded at shortstop.

Starlin Castro an All-Star for third time

There might not be a more meaningful All-Star selection than Chicago Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro, who made it for the third time in five big league seasons. It was a year ago on this date Castro was hitting just .234 with an on-base percentage of .269 en route to the worst year of his career. He was maligned by fans and press alike as his defense suffered about as much as his offense. No matter how you analyze it, Castro was also responsible -- at least in some fashion -- for the dismissal of former manager Dale Sveum.
