Mark Trumbo Skipping ASG If Passed Upon

No Trumbombs at Citi Field if he's not in the midsummer classic.

The Angels slugger would sit out of the Home Run Derby, if asked, IF he is not selected for the All-Star Game. When asked, Trumbo said it would be "awkward" to do the Derby but not be on the American League team for the actual game.

Personally, I'd love to see Mark Trumbo in the ASG because last year he actually pumped some life into it. Remember when Garrett Anderson won? Or when Big Bad Vladdy did it?
