SAN DIEGO (AP) - San Diego Padres closer Heath Bell will replace Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Yovani Gallardo in the All-Star game.

Gallardo was put on the 15-day disabled list this week with a left oblique strain. NL All-Star manager Charlie Manuel chose Bell since he had also chosen Gallardo.

This is the second straight All-Star selection for Bell, who was the loser in last year’s game. He is tied for the NL lead with 23 saves. He is 4-0 with a 1.72 ERA.
