Hector Santiago replaces Sonny Gray on the AL All-Star roster

Sonny Gray turned in another masterpiece on Sunday, tossing a two-hit shutout against the Indians. With the effort, he lowered his AL-leading ERA to 2.04 with a 0.96 WHIP and a 108/30 K/BB ratio in 123 2/3 innings.

One problem: because he pitched today, Gray won’t be available to pitch in the All-Star Game on Tuesday in Cincinnati. As a result, Angels starter Hector Santiago has been added to the roster to replace Gray, per Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register.

Santiago, 27, has quietly put up a 2.33 ERA with a 1.10 WHIP and a 98/34 K/BB ratio in 108 1/3 innings.
