Red Sox’ Ortiz, Pedroia named to All-Star team

Three Red Sox players have been named to the American League All-Star team, and a fourth is a nominee in the “Final Vote” that will add one more player to the roster.

David Ortiz will be the starter at designated hitter after receiving more than six million fan votes, which was fifth-highest in the AL. Second baseman Dustin Pedroia and pitcher Clay Buchholz were also named to the AL roster via the player vote, a combination of players, managers, and coaches.
