All-Star Game 2011: Dodgers' Andre Ethier In, Phillies' Shane Victorino Out

On Sunday, the Philadelphia PhilliesShane Victorino injured a thumb while trying to make a play in the field. Today, as earlier reported here at Baseball Nation, the Phillies placed Victorino on the 15-day disabled list. Infielder Pete Orr was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to take Victorino’s spot on the Philadelphia roster. The move is retroactive to July 4.

Victorino just won the Final Vote fan ballot and was added to the National League All-Star roster yesterday.

The DodgersAndre Ethier, who finished second to Victorino in the Final Vote balloting, will take Victorino’s place on the NL All-Star roster. Ethier is having a fine season, hitting .313/.382/.451 with seven HR and 42 RBI, and earlier this year had a 30-game hitting streak, a MLB record for the month of April and the second-longest hitting streak in Dodgers franchise history, just one short of Willie Davis’ record set in 1969.
