2011 MLB All-Star Game Rosters: Scott Rolen To Replace Chipper Jones

Chipper Jones will not take part in the 2011 MLB All-Star Game after undergoing surgery to repair a torn left meniscus on Saturday, opening the door for Cincinnati Reds third baseman Scott Rolen. As the next-highest vote-getter at third base on the National League ballot, Rolen was the obvious choice to replace the injured Braves' third baseman, and the move was made official on Saturday night.

The All-Star appearance will be Rolen's seventh, and marks the second-year in a row he's been named to the Midsummer Classic.

"This is the seventh All-Star berth of Rolen’s 16-year Major League career, having also represented the National League each year from 2002-2006 and in 2010. Entering play tonight, Rolen was batting .245 with 30 runs scored, five home runs and 35 RBI in 60 games. He has gone 3-for-8 (.375) in the four Midsummer Classics in which he has played.
