NEW YORK (AP) - Seattle Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager has been selected to replace injured Toronto first baseman Edwin Encarnacion on the American League's roster for next week's All-Star game.

The 26-year-old Seager, a first-time All-Star, entered Monday with a .274 average, 13 homers, 59 RBIs and 21 doubles.

Encarnacion, who has 26 home runs and 70 RBIs, was put on the 15-day disabled list Monday because of a strained right quadriceps.

The All-Star game is scheduled for July 15 at Target Field in Minneapolis.
