Dodgers All-Star profile 2018: Kenley Jansen - True Blue LA
After pitching four times in the previous five days, it is very likely that Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen will not pitch on Tuesday night. But this is his third straight All-Star nod, putting him in select company in franchise history.
Selection process
After getting voted in by the players in his first two All-Star selections (2016 ad 2017), Jansen this time around was a selection from the commissioner’s office. There are five relief pitchers on the National League roster: Sean Doolittle, Josh Hader and Brad Hand were voted in by the players, while Jansen and Felipe Vazquez were selected by the commissioner’s office.

MLB All-Star Game 2018: Dodgers send two to Washington, Muncy in Final Vote - True Blue LA
No Ross Stripling....yet.
Rosters for the 2018 All-Star Game were announced Sunday afternoon, and the Dodgers are sending two players for the time being.
Representing the Dodgers in Miami will be outfielder Matt Kemp and closer Kenley Jansen, while infielder Max Muncy is one of the five candidates in the National League Final Vote.
Kemp adds another notch to the surprising season he has put together this season after he was practically left for dead money during the winter. The 33-year-old will get the start in the outfield for the National League team, receiving 2,930,353 fan votes to join Nick Markakis of the Braves (3,556,469) and Bryce Harper (2,335,733).
This will be the third All-Star selection for Kemp (2011, 2012) who is hitting .317/.355/.550 this year, with 18 doubles, 15 homers and 57 RBI. This is also the first Dodger to start since Yasiel Puig in 2014.
One more thing to note: Matt Kemp received the most votes among NL outfielders from the players.

The Winning Photos of Nat Geo's Travel Photographer of the Year 2018
National Geographic has announced the winning photos of its popular Travel Photographer of the Year 2018 photo contest. The grand prize was awarded to Japanese photographer Reiko Takahashi, who captured an underwater photo of a humpback whale calf’s tail.
The winning photo, titled “Mermaid,” was selected from over 13,000 entries received this year. Here’s the description provided by the photographer:
I was fortunate to have encountered a humpback whale with her calf on my first day snorkeling near Japan’s Kumejima Island. Most of the time, the calf stayed close to her mom. At one point, the calf began jumping and tapping its tail on the water near us—it was very friendly and curious. Finally, the mother, who was watching nearby, came to pick up the calf and swim away. I fell in love completely with the calf and it’s very energetic, large, and beautiful tail.
