Royals catcher Salvador Perez, left fielder Alex Gordon and closer Greg Holland have been chosen to the 2014 American League All-Star team. The Midsummer Classic will be played July 15 at Target Field in Minneapolis. Perez will replace injured Baltimore Orioles catcher Matt Wieters in the starting lineup. The three Royals each appeared in the All-Star Game for the first time last season, the first time the club had sent more than two players to the game since 1988.
