Rangers righty Alexi Ogando joins AL All-Stars
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP)
Sabathia had been the replacement for Tampa Bay's James Shields, but Sabathia and Shields both pitched on Sunday, and Ogando was next on the players' ballot.
Ogando, a converted reliever, is 9-3 with a 2.92 ERA in 17 starts for Texas this season and will be making his first All-Star appearance.
Ogando becomes the fifth Ranger who'll participate in Tuesday night's game in Phoenix, joining outfielder Josh Hamilton, third baseman Adrian Beltre, left-hander C.J. Wilson and designated hitter Michael Young.
