The Astros’ six selections are tied for the most in the Majors with the Dodgers.

Devenski, 26, joins Houston second baseman Jose Altuve, shortstop Carlos Correa, outfielder George Springer and starting pitchers Lance McCullers Jr. and Dallas Keuchel as All-Stars. Keuchel, however, will not play because of injury.

Since Devenski debuted in 2016, he’s been among the league’s most dominant pitchers, ranking second in the Majors in ERA (2.14) and WHIP (0.87), behind only Clayton Kershaw (1.92 ERA, 0.80 WHIP).

Devenski leads all relievers with 72 strikeouts and 51 2/3 innings pitched this season, and he’s tied for the most wins by a reliever with six.

The Astros’ previous record for most All-Stars in a season was five, when Jeff Bagwell, Craig Biggio, Ken Caminiti, Doug Drabek and John Hudek were named as National League All-Stars in 1994.
