Zaun at the All-Star Game

The Brewers have a fourth representative at the All-Star Game. Well, sort of. 

Injured catcher Gregg Zaun, out for the season following shoulder surgery, is in Anaheim as a credential-carrying member of the media. He’s working as a correspondent for Canada’s Rogers Sportsnet.
“I asked Doug [Melvin] and Gord [Ash] if I could do it, and they were nice enough to say yes,” Zaun said. “I really appreciated that. This is pretty cool.”
Zaun is very popular in Canada after playing for the Blue Jays from 2004 through most of 2009. He signed as a free agent with Milwaukee last winter but his season was cut short by a torn labrum in his shoulder. Zaun underwent surgery on June 16 and until Sunday wore a sling.
The Brewers hold a club option on Zaun for 2011, which he expects they will decline. He’ll decide later whether to continue his career.
