A spirited push from the White Sox and their fan base couldn't deliver Jake Peavy to the All-Star Game. The Sox right-hander with the best ERA — and then some — among pitchers not on the American League All-Star team finished second to Texas Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish in the fans' Final Vote.

Darvish and St. Louis Cardinals third baseman David Freese (National League) each made it for the first time, thanks to fan balloting which ended at 3 p.m. on Thursday.
