The other, lesser consequence of the Rangers' Yu Darvish being placed on the DL is that Darvish won't be part of the All-Star Game on July 16 at Citi Field. American League manager Jim Leyland has tabbed Rays lefty Matt Moore to replace Darvish on the AL roster (source: CBSSports.com's Danny Knobler). This will be Moore's first trip to the Midsummer Classic.
This season, the 24-year-old Moore has pitched to a 3.42 ERA (113 ERA+), 1.33 WHIP and a 1.85 K/BB ratio. He's also 12-3, which is probably why he's now an All-Star. Although the run-prevention numbers are solid enough, Moore hasn't truly pitched like an All-Star in 2013, particularly at the peripheral level (e.g., he's issued 53 unintentional walks in 100 innings).
