Longoria to sit out All-Star game, Figgins added to AL roster

Evan Longoria has been scratched from tonight's All-Star game because of an infected right ring finger that had to be drained and treated with antibiotics yesterday.

Michael Young will start at third base and bat seventh for the American League while Chone Figgins gets added to the roster as a last-minute replacement.

This is Figgins' first All-Star selection, while Young is a six-time All-Star who'll be making his first career start at the age of 32.

Oh, and the total number of players involved in the two-team game is now something like 150.
