Rodney Replaces Price On All-Star Roster

Posted July 13th, 2014 @ 12:27am by Steve Carney

The only Rays player on the American League All-Star roster will not play in the annual midsummer classic.

Because he is starting Tampa Bay's final game before the All-Star break, pitcher David Price will not be available for the American League team Tuesday in Minneapolis.

Seattle reliever Fernando Rodney has been named Price's replacement on the team.

Rodney, in his first year with the Mariners after spending the last two seasons as the Rays' closer, is 1-3 with a 1.98 earned run average with 27 saves in 29 opportunties.
