Archer, 28, is coming off a 19-loss season in 2016 but is 7-5 with a 3.95 ERA in 18 starts this year. His 116.1 innings is third in the league and his 139 strikeouts is second to Chris Sale’s staggering 178.
Archer’s first All Star appearance came in 2015. That year he finished 12-13 with a 3.23 ERA in 34 starts. The righty was among the league leaders in strikeouts with 252 and finished fifth in the Cy Young voting.
Manager Kevin Cash will also be in Miami as part of the AL coaching staff.
The 2017 MLB All Star Game takes place Tuesday, July 11th, from Marlins Park in Miami.
