Werth Replaces Beltran on NL ASG Roster
It has just been announced that Jayson Werth will be taking the spot of Carlos Beltran on the All-Star Game roster. This will be the first time since 1995 that three outfielders from the same team will be going to the ASG (Cleveland Indians Manny Ramirez, Kenny Lofton, and Albert Belle) and the first NL outfield since 1972 (Pittsburgh Pirates Roberto Clemente, Willie Stargell and Al Oliver)
For the record, Werth's 2009 Topps card is #557 and on the 15-card team set, his card is #PHI9.
