Gleyber Torres named to AL All-Star team in place of Rays' Brandon Lowe

The Tampa Bay Rays placed second baseman Brandon Lowe on the 10-day injured list with a bruised right shin, with the rookie now out of next week's All-Star Game.
The opening on the American League roster will be filled by the New York Yankees' Gleyber Torres.
Lowe was injured Tuesday when he fouled a ball off his right leg. He finished the at-bat but has not played since. Lowe is batting .276 with 16 home runs and 49 RBIs in his first full season. He had just been named as an All-Star replacement for the Angels' Tommy La Stella, who also went in the IL after fouling a ball off his leg.
Torres entered play Thursday bating .298 with 19 home runs and 50 RBIs. His manager, Aaron Boone, had voiced his displeasure this week that his infielder was not going to the All-Star Game.
"I think it's a joke that he not on the team," Boone told reporters Wednesday. "I mean, Gleyber Torres is not an All-Star? You can kick rocks on that one. That's ridiculous. He's been unbelievable for us, a first-place club."
