No replacement was announced, but we’re guessing will soon announce that Kevin Youkilis and Jhonny Peralta have been added to the squad as reserves. Adrian Beltre and Asdrubal Cabrera figure to move into the starting lineup in place of Rodriguez and Jeter, respectively.
That could leave the AL with the following lineup:
The AL has six left-handed hitters starting, so there will only be so much splitting them up.
- Giancarlo Stanton sends the Marlins to victory with a walk-off grand slam 6
- Jason Bartlett will retire after 10 years in the big leagues 3
- Pirates acquire Ike Davis in a trade with the Mets 37
