Boston Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts, Tampa Bay Rays second baseman Brandon Lowe and Minnesota Twins starting pitcher Jose Berrios were named as injury replacements to the American League All-Star team on Wednesday.

The trio replace Los Angeles Angels second baseman Tommy La Stella (fractured right tibia), Texas Rangers designated hitter Hunter Pence (groin) and Twins right-hander Jake Odorizzi (blister).

La Stella suffered his injury Tuesday when he was struck by his own foul ball, while Pence is on the injured list with a groin injury suffered on June 16.

Odorizzi went on the injured list Wednesday and was replaced by his teammate in Berrios. The right-handed Berrios is 8-4 with a 2.89 ERA in 17 starts.

Bogaerts is batting .301 with 16 homers, 58 RBIs and AL-best 28 doubles, while Lowe is among the leading AL Rookie of the Year candidates. He is batting .276 with 16 homers, 49 RBIs and 17 doubles.

The All-Star Game is Tuesday in Cleveland.
