Lincecum, Halladay to start All-Star game

Monday, July 13, 2009 | 12:58 p.m. CDT

ST. LOUIS — Tim Lincecum and Roy Halladay have been selected as the starting pitchers for the All-Star game.

Last year's NL Cy Young Award winner, Lincecum, is 10-2 with a 2.33 ERA for the San Francisco Giants. He will get the ball Tuesday night at Busch Stadium, NL manager Charlie Manuel announced Monday.

Lincecum was chosen for last season's All-Star game at Yankee Stadium but was unable to pitch because he was ill.

Halladay, who is 10-3 with a 2.85 ERA for the Toronto Blue Jays, was selected to start by the AL's Joe Maddon.

Halladay could be on the trading block soon. Toronto general manager J.P. Ricciardi recently said he'll listen to offers for the 2003 AL Cy Young Award winner.
