Moore replaces injured Darvish as AL All-Star


NEW YORK (AP) — Tampa Bay left-hander Matt Moore has replaced injured Texas pitcher Yu Darvish on the American League All-Star roster.

The change was announced after Moore got the win Thursday as the Rays beat Minnesota.

Moore is 13-3 and tied with Detroit’s Max Scherzer for the league lead in victories. The 24-year-old Moore has a 3.44 ERA in 19 starts.

Darvish was put on the disabled list Wednesday because of a mild strain in his upper back. He is 8-4 and leads the majors with 157 strikeouts.

Darvish is a two-time All-Star. The right-hander plans to attend the All-Star festivities in New York. The All-Star game is Tuesday night at Citi Field.
