National League All-Star roster undergoes changes

Four pitchers are added to NL All-Star team to replace four who pitched Sunday

San Francisco's Tim Hudson, Cincinnati's Alfredo Simon, San Diego's Huston Street and Washington's Tyler Clippard have been added to the roster for Tuesday's All-Star game at Target Field in Minneapolis as the National League changed about one-third of its pitching staff.

They replace a quartet of pitchers who started Sunday: San Francisco's Madison Bumgarner, Cincinnati's Johnny Cueto, San Diego's Tyson Ross and Atlanta's Julio Teheran.

Hudson, a four-time All-Star, is 7-6 with a 2.87 earned-run average and Simon is 12-3 with a 2.70 ERA. Street has 24 saves and a 1.09 ERA, and Clippard is 6-2 with a 2.03 ERA in 43 relief appearances.


Braves suspend Dan Uggla for one game

The Atlanta Braves suspended struggling second baseman Dan Uggla for one game.

Manager Fredi Gonzalez declined comment before Atlanta's game against the Cubs at Chicago, calling it an "internal matter."

Uggla, 34, has played sparingly since rookie Tommy La Stella was promoted from triple-A Gwinnett on May 28. Uggla is batting .162 with two home runs and 10 runs batted in in 48 games.
