It has been quite a week for Brian Dozier. This past Monday, Dozier was left off the AL All-Star roster but was one of five AL Final Vote candidates, even though many thought he deserved to be selected on Monday. That night, he hit a walk-off home run as the Twins beat the Baltimore Orioles. Three nights later, after Dozier finished second in the AL Final Vote, he hit another walk-off home run in the Twins’ dramatic comeback against the Detroit Tigers. One day later, it was announced that Dozier would replace injured Jose Bautista and go to the All-Star Game after all. What a week!
Congratulations to Dozier, along with closer Glen Perkins, on making the AL All-Star team! Let’s hope both players play well in the Game on July 14 and have successful second halves of the season!
