Ethier Is an All-Star

And just like that, Andre Ethier becomes the 3rd Dodger added onto the National League All-Star roster.
Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier has been named to replace Shane Victorino of the Philadelphia Phillies on the National League’s active roster for the 82nd All-Star Game, Major League Baseball announced today.

Victorino, the winner of the 2011 All-Star Game Final Vote Sponsored by Sprint, has been placed on the disabled list by the Phillies and thus will be inactive for the Midsummer Classic. Ethier also was a candidate in the Final Vote. A starter for the National League in the 2010 Midsummer Classic, Ethier is now an All-Star for the second consecutive season. The Arizona native is batting .313 on the season with 23 doubles, seven home runs, 42 RBI and 43 runs scored. Ethier assembled a Major League season-best 30-game hitting streak earlier this season.
