The announcement just came from the league.

Chicago White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko has been named to replace Justin Morneau of the Minnesota Twins on the American League’s active roster for the 81st All-Star Game, Major League Baseball announced today.

Because Morneau was a fan-elected starter, his replacement was selected by American League All-Star manager Joe Girardi. This is Konerko’s fourth All-Star Game selection, having also been named in 2002, 2005 and 2006.

Konerko enters play tonight with a .299 batting average, 20 home runs and 62 RBI.
Konerko will be a reserve on the A.L. squad, while player-elected All-Star Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers will now serve as the American League’s starting first baseman.
