Congratulations to Milwaukee Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun on being named a starter for the All-Star game.
Braves third baseman Chipper Jones is replacing Dodgers third baseman Matt Kemp on the NL All-Star roster, meaning Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun will now start in the outfield in Kemp’s place.
Braun will be named the starter for the fifth year in a row. Braun had finished fourth in the voting among outfielders, but was selected as a reserve.
Jones had been a candidate to be voted onto the team by fans in baseball’s Final Vote campaign. Instead, the 40-year-old Jones is replacing Kemp, who is on the disabled list with a hamstring injury but plans to participate in the All-Star home run derby.
