Statements from Rivera and Cano on their 2013 All-Star Game selections;

|

RIVERA:
"It's wonderful to be named an All-Star again, especially with the game being here in New York. New York fans are the best and they deserve it. I know that they will put on a great show and hopefully we'll do a good job."

CANO:
"It feels great. I want to thank God and the fans that dedicated their time to vote for me to start this year's All-Star Game. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it. There's a lot of great second basemen in the American League, and I am thankful to the fans for voting and appreciating the way that I've been playing this year. It makes it that much more special that the game and the events surrounding it are being held here in New York City."

ROBERTSON:
"I feel excited and hopeful that I'll be selected to go to my second All-Star Game. I know there are four other guys in the mix, but hopefully I can get enough votes. To be able to sit alongside Mariano in that bullpen in his final All-Star Game appearance would be an awfully special moment in my career. Yankees fans are the best, and I know that they will make every effort to send me to Queens."
