    Chicago White Sox pitcher Jake Peavy has been selected to replace Los Angeles Angels left-hander C.J. Wilson on the AL roster for Tuesday night's All-Star game.

    Peavy, who lost to Texas Rangers rookie Yu Darvish in online voting for the final spot on the AL team, is 7-5 with a 2.85 ERA for the AL Central-leading White Sox. The 31-year-old right-hander also has four complete games.

    Wilson, a two-time All-Star, has a blister issue on the middle finger of his pitching hand and is going to use the break to rest. Major League Baseball says Wilson plans to attend the All-Star festivities in Kansas City.

    Wilson is 9-5 with a 2.43 ERA in 18 starts for the Angels this season.

    The roster change was announced on Sunday.
