Rays left-hander David Price bowed out of the All-Star game on Sunday afternoon due to a mild case of turf toe, according to Marc Topkin of the St. Petersburg Times.

Price still plans to attend all of the All-Star festivities, but he will not take the mound. The 25-year-old southpaw turned in a 3.70 ERA and 1.09 WHIP in 19 first-half starts, fanning 125 batters and walking only 26 over 129 innings.

Replacing him on the American League roster will be Yankees reliever David Robertson. A 26-year-old right-hander from tornado-ravaged Tuscaloosa, Alabama, he’s posted a 1.27 ERA and 56 strikeouts in 38 appearances this season. He’s likely to face a couple of batters near the end of Tuesday’s Midsummer Classic.

    A very underrated reliever, the guy is nasty out there. When he gets a little more command of his pitches this guy could close for any team.
