Minnesota Twins shortstop Eduardo Nunez is headed to his first All Star Game.

Major League Baseball made the announcement on Tuesday evening during it's program on the MLB Network.

Nunez has been Minnesota's most consistent player all season long. After starting the season on the bench, he became red hot once he finally made it into Paul Molitor's lineup on a regular basis.
