Minnesota Closer Kintzler Headed to All Star Game
NEW YORK (AP) — Minnesota reliever Brandon Kintzler and Seattle second baseman Robinson Cano are among seven replacement players selected for Tuesday's All-Star Game in Miami.
Tampa Bay pitcher Chris Archer, Toronto reliever Roberto Osuna, Houston reliever Chris Devenski and Detroit outfielder Justin Upton also were added to the AL roster Friday. Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Alex Wood was added to the NL All-Stars.
Three of the original All-Stars are on the disabled list and won't be active for the game: Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout, New York Yankees second baseman Starlin Castro and Houston pitcher Dallas Keuchel.
Four pitchers on the All-Star rosters won't be active because they are scheduled to start Sunday: the Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw, Texas' Yu Darvish, Cleveland's Corey Kluber and Detroit's Michael Fulmer.
