Marlins' Alvarez Named All-Star Replacement

The Marlins have a second All-Star headed to Tuesday's game in Minneapolis.  

Pitcher Henderson Alvarez was named to the National League team as a replacement for the Washington Nationals' Jordan Zimmerman.  Alvarez is 6-4 with a 2.63 ERA.

The 24 year old is making his first All-Star appearance and joins slugger Giancarlo Stanton as a Marlins representative. Stanton is expected to start at designated hitter for the NL and is also participating in Monday's Home Run Derby.
