Padres closer Bell replaces Gallardo on NL roster
San Diego Padres closer Heath Bell will replace Milwaukee
Brewers right-hander Yovani Gallardo in the All-Star game.
Gallardo was put on the 15-day disabled list this week with a
left oblique strain. NL All-Star manager Charlie Manuel chose Bell
since he had also chosen Gallardo.
This is the second straight All-Star selection for Bell, who was
the loser in last year’s game. He is tied for the NL lead with 23
saves. He is 4-0 with a 1.72 ERA.
