Holliday tabbed to replace Molina on NL roster

National League manager Tony La Russa selected Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday to replace teammate Yadier Molina on the NL active roster for Tuesday's All-Star Game in Kansas City.

St. Louis placed Molina, one of three catchers on the NL squad, on the bereavement list on Friday. A four-time All-Star, Molina is batting .304 with 13 home runs and 45 RBIs. His absence will leave Tuesday's catching duties to San Francisco's Buster Posey and Philadelphia's Carlos Ruiz, barring any additional roster modifications.

Holliday entered Friday's action with a .318 average, 14 homers and 56 RBIs. The 32-year-old will be making his sixth appearance in the Midsummer Classic.

The 83rd Major League Baseball All-Star Game will be televised nationally by FOX Sports, in Canada by Rogers Sportsnet and RDS, and worldwide by partners in more than 200 countries via MLB International's independent feed. Pregame ceremonies begin at 7:30 p.m. ET. ESPN Radio and ESPN Radio Deportes will provide exclusive national radio coverage. MLB Network, MLB.com and Sirius XM also will provide comprehensive All-Star Game coverage.

Fans will also have the opportunity to participate in the official voting for the Ted Williams Most Valuable Player presented by Chevrolet via the 2012 MLB.com All-Star Game MVP Vote during the All-Star Game on MLB.com.

The Home Run Derby can be seen on MLB.com and ESPN at 7:30 p.m. ET on Monday.
