Lucroy to start at catcher for NL in All-Star game

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - Milwaukee's Jonathan Lucroy will replace injured St. Louis catcher Yadier Molina as the National League's starter for Tuesday night's All-Star game.

The commissioner's office said Friday that Arizona's Miguel Montero will fill Molina's roster spot and Detroit second baseman Ian Kinsler will replace injured Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez.

Elected to start for the fourth time, Molina tore a ligament in his right thumb Wednesday. He was scheduled for surgery Friday and is expected to be sidelined for at least eight weeks.

Martinez hasn't played since July 4 because of a strained back.
