NEW YORK (AP) -- Reigning Cy Young winner Brandon Webb of the Arizona Diamondbacks will replace injured Colorado reliever Brian Fuentes on the NL roster for the All-Star game.
The game is Tuesday night in San Francisco.
Fuentes, who will miss the game with a strained back muscle, won his spot in player voting. Webb was the top vote-getter among NL pitchers on the player ballot who were not chosen.
The left-handed Fuentes is 0-and-4 with a 4.06 ERA and 20 saves.
He recently lost his job as the Rockies closer after blowing four straight save chances but expects to regain his role after the All-Star break. Fuentes says he still plans to go to San Francisco to take part in the festivities.
