Victorino Moves Aside With Thumb Owie, Making Way For A Real Right Fielder

Andre Ethier makes the 2011 All Star Game!

LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier, who finished second to Shane Victorino in this week's All-Star Game Final Vote, will replace the injured Victorino at next week's Classic in his Phoenix hometown.

It will be the second consecutive All-Star Game for Ethier, who was voted onto the starting lineup last year.

Ethier joins Dodgers teammates Matt Kemp and Clayton Kershaw on this year's National League All-Star team. Kemp was voted into the starting lineup by fans and Kershaw was selected in balloting of players. The 2011 All-Star Game will be played at Chase Field in Phoenix July 12.

You see, all those Final Vote efforts paid off! Way to go, 'Dre!

I was hoping Juan Pierre would get the slot.
