Pirates pitcher Paul Skenes an All-Star just 2 months after debut; Closer Tanner Scott the Marlins’ lone representative

By WES CROSBY PITTSBURGH (AP) — Paul Skenes’ first All-Star selection was as speedy as his fastball. Just eight weeks after his major league debut for the Pittsburgh Pirates, the 22-year-old right-hander was selected Sunday by Major League Baseball for the National League roster in the July 16 game at Arlington, Texas. “It’s happened quick,” Skenes said. “Hopefully, I’ll have some time when I get out there to take it all in and be able to experience it all. It’s just a really cool opportunity all around.” Skenes’ final outing before the All-Star break is likely to be midweek, so he could be...
