ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington gets to take four of his own players with him to Arizona for the All-Star game. He only had to pick one of them.

Reigning AL MVP Josh Hamilton had already been voted in as a starter by the fans, while third baseman Adrian Beltre and designated hitter Michael Young were chosen on the players ballot. Washington used one of his seven managerial picks to put left-hander C.J. Wilson on the AL team.

It is the first All-Star selection for Wilson, the former closer who was 8-3 with a 3.14 ERA going into his start Sunday night against Florida.

Hamilton was voted in as a starter for the fourth consecutive season. It is the seventh All-Star selection for Young, and the second for Beltre.

Hunter Pence will be the lone representative for the Astros in Phoenix next week.
