Hudson, Simon, Street, Clippard join NL All-Stars

Posted: Updated:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - San Francisco's Tim Hudson, Cincinnati's Alfredo Simon, San Diego's Huston Street and Washington's Tyler Clippard have been added to the roster for Tuesday's All-Star game at Target Field as the National League changed about one-third of its pitching staff.

They replace a quartet of pitchers who started Sunday: the Giants' Madison Bumgarner, the Reds' Johnny Cueto, the Padres' Tyson Ross and the Atlanta Braves' Julio Teheran.

Hudson, a four-time All-Star, is 7-6 with a 2.87 ERA, and Simon is 12-3 with a 2.70 ERA. Street has 24 saves and a 1.09 ERA, and Clippard is 6-2 with a 2.03 ERA in 43 relief appearances.

"It's a give and take. Obviously, I'm honored and happy in that sense," Clippard said before laughing and adding, "I'd like to go get some rounds of golf in, but I'll take one for the team."
