In for the U.S. team: righthander Kevin Mulvey (Mets) and infielder Matt Tolbert (Twins). Out for the U.S.: Jacoby Ellsbury (Red Sox) and Matt Garza (Twins), both of whom will miss the game after being promoted to the major leagues.
Outfielder James Van Ostrand (Astros), a Canadian who played at Cal Poly, replaces injured Mets phenom Fernando Martinez, who has a right hand problem. Martinez hasn’t played since June 23 for Double-A Binghamton.
