Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw will replace the Nationals' Max Scherzer on the NL All-Star roster.
Kershaw was a nominee in the NL roster's Final Vote competition, which was won by Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez. Due to injury replacements, Martinez and AL winner Mike Moustakas of the Royals have now been joined by four of the eight other Final Vote nominees on the roster.
Kershaw, 27 and a three-time Cy Young award-winner, is 6-6 with a 2.85 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 160 strikeouts in 123 innings for the Dodgers this season.
