Samardzija selected, but denied
July 7, 2014 - Ron Deuter
The trade last week that sent Cubs’ ace Jeff Samardzija to Oakland may have moved the right-hander from worst to first, but it has cost him a spot on the all-star team.
Samardzija was selected as a National League All-Star, but MLB rules say he is ineligible to play because of the league switch as a result of the trade.
Samardzija will still be introduced as a member of the the NL team before the game, but whether he wears a Cubs or A’s uniform — or a generic NL uniform — is not decided.
