Here’s the announcement from MLB…

Detroit Tigers shortstop Jhonny Peralta has been named to replace New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter and Boston Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis has been named to replace New York’s Alex Rodriguez on the American League’s active roster for the 82nd All-Star Game, Major League Baseball announced today.

Because Jeter and Rodriguez were fan-elected All-Stars, their replacements on the roster were chosen by American League All-Star manager Ron Washington in conjunction with Major League Baseball.

In addition, because Cleveland Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera and Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre are the highest ranking available players on the Player Ballot, they will be starters for the American League in Tuesday’s Midsummer Classic.
