Michael Brantley has been chosen to represent the Cleveland Indians on the American League team in the 2014 All-Star Game, marking the Tribe centerfielder's first appearance in the Midsummer Classic.

Through 83 games this year, the 27-year-old Brantley has hit .321 with 13 home runs, 20 doubles, one triple, 10 stolen bases, 57 RBI, 58 runs and 103 hits for Cleveland. Defensively, Brantley's 10 assists in the outfielder were tied for the most in the Major Leagues.

The Indians are also hoping that pitcher Corey Kluber (8-6, 2.86 ERA, 137 strikeouts) joins Brantley in the 2014 All-Star Game, which will be played at the Minnesota Twins' Target Field in Minneapolis.
