D-backs, Rays team up to push Kennedy, Zobrist

As the All-Star game roster nears its final draft, the Arizona Diamondbacks and Tampa Bay Rays have teamed up to get respective pitcher Ian Kennedy and second baseman Ben Zobrist on that roster, according to a press release.

Fans are encouraged to vote for both players when they log their votes on dbacks.com, tampabayrays.com or mlb.com. Fans are also asked to use the hashtags #VoteIanIn and #HelpZoGo when they tweet about the players.

“It’s exciting to be part of the All-Star Game Final Vote campaign and still have an opportunity to make the National League All-Star team,” Kennedy said in the release. “I appreciate the support D-backs fans have given me all season and hopefully it will carry over into this campaign. I would be honored to make the team, especially to have the chance to pitch in front of our fans at Chase Field.”

Kennedy had a record of 8-2 with a 3.01 in his 17 starts this season, prior to Sunday’s game with Oakland. He is tied for first in winning percentage with .800 and fourth in innings pitched with 116.2.

Votes can be cast until 1:00 p.m. Thursday.
