Colorado Rockies ace Ubaldo Jimenez will start for the National League in the All-Star game Tuesday night while the AL will counter with Tampa Bay's David Price.
Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was voted-in, but is on the disabled list. Carlos Gonzales had a shot at making the team last week when he was one of five NL players included in voting for the final slot. CarGo came in third in voting. The Reds' Joey Votto made the team.
In this year of the pitcher, Jimenez was a fitting pick by Phillies manager Charlie Manuel. The NL will try Tuesday night at Angel Stadium to end a 13-year drought in baseball's midsummer classic.
Jimenez is 15-1 with a 2.20 ERA.
Price is 12-4 with a 2.42 ERA.
Manuel and AL manager Joe Girardi of the World Series champion New York Yankees made the announcements Monday.
